    Gee, you ever wonder why Fake News is considered Fake?

    Journalism ethics and standards - Wikipedia

    While various existing codes have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability, as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.[1][2][3][4]

    Like many broader ethical systems, journalism ethics include the principle of "limitation of harm". This often involves the withholding of certain details from reports such as the names of minor children, crime victims' names or information not materially related to particular news reports release of which might, for example, harm someone's reputation.[5][6]

    With the rise of the internet, many online websites don't bother with this sort of thing at all.

    Newspapers have always been biased, and some have lied a little. But they've always maintained some sort of standard.

    I bought a Sunday newspaper today (because my phone died, forgot to charge it) and it was $4 damn bucks...guess they have to start faking it to compete.
