Re: Fake news ??????

I could give you some examples that I think everyone would agree are fake news, eg the claim that Peter Jones invested in an automatic money-making machine during a Dragon's Den show that returned some stupidly high % of his investment in only 20 minutes, and the article is mocked-up to look like it is from The Mirror.

Then there's the claim that a pizza shop that doesn't have a basement has a paedophile ring in the basement that it doesn't have.

I suppose the question is where you draw though.
