The news (and much more) is mostly fake
The fake news meme is a propaganda psy-op
Needs proof. This Topic statement is just a statement of opinion.
The news and much more is mostly fake as is tentatively established here: https://truthsift.com/search_view?topic=&id=466&nid1=6752&fs=0
so it is apparently more than just a propaganda psy –op, although it is currently being used as an excuse for censorship by the major Internet companies such as Facebook, And this may yet lead to more government regulation of these companies.
The current "fake news" meme in the mainstream and alternative media is the pretext for more government surveillance and censorship of the internet.
