Fake news has been in the news a lot of late. Fake news does not imply highly biased opinion pieces but deals in absolute factual lies. The motivations to do so range from the strictly monetary to political subterfuge. Either way, cynicism about what is true and what is not will further corrode trust at all levels of public discourse.
