How to be a ‘fake news’ columnist

“Fake news” is a buzzword that’s used to describe stories that spread misinformation or otherwise misrepresent the news, but there’s a new definition for it, as it’s increasingly becoming a buzz word on social media and other platforms.

The term is a bit more nebulous, but it does appear to have expanded across all media over the past few years. 

The term has been used to refer to any story or story format that appears to be intentionally fake, or one that’s designed to make the reader believe something untrue.

In a recent survey conducted by Buzzfeed News, more than 40 per cent of readers said they’d never used the word “fake news”.

BuzzFeed News’ survey, which polled 1,000 people from the US and UK, found that nearly half of all respondents said they wouldn’t use the term “fake” in their articles or comments on social platforms, and less than half said they would use the word in a news article.

The new definition also appears to include a “false” meaning.

The definition for the word was introduced in an October 2017 report by the American Journalism Review and the Oxford English Dictionary.

The report’s author, professor David Ehrlich, explained that fake news can include stories that are deliberately false, but that it doesn’t have to be deliberately false.

“We’re not saying fake news is necessarily false, and we’re not telling people to use a particular word to describe it, but what we are saying is that we’re saying that there are things in the world that are intentionally false,” Dr Ehrlich said.

“If you’re going to call something a fake news article, it’s going to have to contain something that’s intentionally false, something that we know has been reported by someone else in the news and put it in context.”

Dr Ehrleith said that it’s important to distinguish between stories that make up news and those that are simply news.

“For example, we’re going with news articles about sports, which are just like news articles,” he said.”[The fake news] is about reporting on the fact that you know that a particular sport is not going to be very good.”

While the term has become popular on social, the definition is far from universal.

BuzzFeed asked readers to define the term, and found that the term is used to mean a variety of things.

Buzzfeed News also surveyed respondents on their favourite types of news.

While most readers said “fake”, more than half of those surveyed said they were “fake”.

“Fake news”, “fake journalism” and “fake media” were used to define a number of different types of content, including headlines, images and articles that were not published in the real world.

The definitions are just as vague as the terms “fake, fake, fake”, which were used in the same survey.

However, readers were more likely to identify a fake story as a “news article” than a “fake,” as “fake articles” often contain a misleading headline or misleading information, while “fake content” often has no real content at all.

In the survey, a majority of respondents said that “fake is more likely” than “fake”: 41 per cent, compared with 26 per cent who said “news” or “news stories”.

“We do see that there’s some overlap in terms of who’s using the word and who’s not using the term,” Dr Eblesith said.

However Dr Eichlen said that the definition doesn’t really apply to all types of fake news.

The study found that when people use the terms, they’re not using them for the purpose of being sarcastic or snarky.

They’re more likely using them to describe content that’s “fairly newsworthy”.

“When people talk about ‘fake’, they’re talking about news, and they’re really saying, ‘This is not real,'” Dr Echlen said. 

“The fact that they’re using the words ‘fake’ and ‘news’ doesn’t mean that that’s the way they’re going.”
