A recent troubling MIT study, revealed that fake news diffused significantly farther, faster, deeper and more broadly than the truth, with the effect even more pronounced when regarding political news as opposed to reporting on natural disasters, finance or science.

  • The comma is off there. A recent troubling MIT study revealed etc. Also, "when regarding" ain't great. "when it regards" would be more elegant.

  • It's a prepositional phrase. It narrows the type of fake news.
