The origin of "fake news" was exactly what the phrase means. It referred to certain groups that would plant misinformation in order to promote their agenda. The stories were not opinion; they were lies.

 

But then "someone" appropriated the phrase....and it went downhill from there. The origin and definition have zero meaning now.


Could not agree more!

Depending on who you are and where your beliefs fall...

 

Opinion and lies are an interchangeable subject. Therefore research and decide for yourself imho.

Those who claim that the news they don't agree with is fake news justify it by giving alternative facts.

Alternative facts? So if we don't agree with you we are...intolerant? Or ignorant? 

 

How sad of an opinion is that, if that was mine I could never go to another family dinner.

If Fox "news" reported it,it's most likely not true.

This story is a little outrageous.  Supposedly he was yelling "Hey Chicks.  Sue me" as he opened up his shirt.  He allegedly was telling jokes about pedophilia, touched a number of employees and tapped a couple of them on the head with his book while insulting their integlligence.

@NorthernLights, it's this muddling of the distinction between fact and opinion that is increasing divisiveness and decreasing  respect for the profession of journalism.

 

Once that happens, there are no more facts. It is one of the most devastating hits at our democracy.
