I hate the term “fake news,” as I would guess most journalists do.

It undermines the entire journalistic community, while carelessly throwing around a term that should have serious implications.

Fake news should be a term reserved for those situations where someone has knowingly published something false, not typos or miscommunications or opinions. Publishing something they knew without a doubt to be false is something that should not be taken lightly.
