The emergence of technology, it resulted in various kinds of information flow. The border among news, entertainment, advertising, propaganda and so on is blurred. Public has difficult to define and interpret any input of information. Hate speech is easy to find, especially after incriminating false news or hoaxes. This situation is exacerbated by the low level of literacy of Indonesian society. Undoubtedly, the low awareness of literacy is one of the roots toward the massive circulation of hoax information. The reality shows that the Indonesian nation is not a nation of readers. Received information is believed as truth information directly, and then attempts to share the information to others. Governments through Education Ministry should engage the education sector by evaluating and teaching strong literacy culture as early as well. The purpose of the particular article is to increase the motivation and interest in reading that is needed to counteract the hoax in media. Explanatory method is used as method. The author summarizes into three parts. The first is hoaxes and literacy, second, motivation and reading interest, and the third is an effort to increase the reading interest. Keywords: hoax, literacy, motivation and reading interest
