Sorry, but most of the media is neither state controlled, nor are they putting out "fake news". The people saying "fake news" are the people who just don't like the reality of the news, so they seek to alter it, and call it into question.
These are the same people for which conspiracy theories hold sway. Once you start believing those, pretty soon you believe anyone, even the people saying that legitimate news sources are publishing fake news.
I don't LIKE Fox News, because I think they are very biased, but the only "fake news" that they've published was on the terrorist attack on a mosque, in Canada, where they cited a Muslim immigrant as a suspect, when he was, in fact, a witness.Fox News falsely reported that the Quebec terrorism suspect was Moroccan. Then Canada got mad.The Canadian, Alexandre Bissonnette, was mentioned nowhere in Fox's tweet Monday, which announced: “Suspect in Quebec mosque terrorist attack was of Moroccan origin.”
Mohamed Belkhadir was quickly released and cleared of involvement, but Fox's tweet stayed up for nearly two days — until the Canadian prime minister's office wrote the outlet to demand a retraction.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the ... 1aa7f5434c
Even so, they didn't actually report "fake news". It was just a mistake, and they had to correct it.
