    Fake news is not confine to the unknown blogger. Many leading media sites like News Limited publish fake news. They are just better at it. They allow some fact like a Politian is unpopular . then they add all that is wrong in a state attribute this to the Politian. This is done in my state where our Premier mier is blame for a break down of law and order, Electricity shortages and prices. crowded roads and public transport.
    Now he is being blame for his name sake losing a race in a car that stoped. The only think he had in common with the racing driver that they were both name Dan.
    Perhaps The American media is doing this with Donald Trump.

    Perhaps Trump started it. Anyway, 60 Minutes had a segment on this tonight:

    Reporting news i.e. applying the trade of journalism and merely spouting oppinion is completely different.
    Fake news is the inability to come to terms with social media. Maybe its an age thing I'm not interested with twitface so its not an issue with me.
