From the time the phrase gained wide currency in late 2016 until about a month ago, “fake news” meant stories fabricated from whole cloth, not intended to be understood satirically, and spread online. Here are a couple of interesting New York Times stories about how such fake news may have mattered or not:
“Inside a Fake News Sausage Factory: ‘This is All About Income.'”
“Researchers Created Fake News. Here’s What They Found.”
