I define fake news as the purposeful staging and fabricating of events or stories used in order to spark fear, sling mud, or sully the reputation of an individual or a group of individuals for different reasons or agendas. In recent times, this has been used repeatedly against Trump but it isn't right if used by or against anybody.

and how would you define "fake news"? to some people it means anyone who won't kiss Trump's a** every single minute.
