Fake News is any news which is factually incorrect or spun in such a manner as to obscure the actual truth. The vast majority of Fake News reported via the Lame Stream Media is of the latter variety, or a re-report of rumor or innuendo reported by a different outlet.
In short most news as reported by the LSM is at best only partially true.
As an example, let us take the ongoing corruption trial of Senator Robert Menendez (D-FL).
In keeping with IowaHawk‘s guide to understanding news coverage:
JOURNALISM IS ABOUT COVERING IMPORTANT STORIES. WITH A PILLOW, UNTIL THEY STOP MOVING.
It should thus not surprise anyone that the LSM have been going out of their way to avoid reporting that for the first time in 36 years a U. S. Senator is standing trial in a criminal court. That no doubt has a lot to do with the accused being a Democrat Senator on trial for official corruption. The Tired Gray Crone of Gotham wrote an entire article on the matter (since stealth ammended) which failed to mention Senator Menendez’s party affiliation at all, while NBC reported the accused was a Republican. Not to be outdone, the Hill framed the story as the trial judge unfairly depriving NJ voters of Senatorial Representation.
These are the shapes and forms of Fake News. They are many and varied, and all are adequately explained if one considers the LSM as a whole to be Democratic Operatives with Bylines.
