"Fake News" is such an unhelpful term. We should stick to the proper one - propaganda. If you want to know why it's more appropriate, you need to check the dictionary. I bet most of you think of Soviet communism or Nazi Germany when you hear that term.

noun

1. information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view.
"he was charged with distributing enemy propaganda"

2. a committee of cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church responsible for foreign missions, founded in 1622 by Pope Gregory XV.

I think of counter-reformation and Jesuits, especially considering Loyola got canonized in 1622. Nazis and commies learned from the best.

I think of Trump and his program to ruin the US electoral process.
