I keep on seeing this term "fake news" lately, but am having trouble defining what it actually means.

Does this mean news outlets with bias? Because this encompasses pretty much all of them.

Or is it the news entities that were telling people that it's illegal to read Wikileaks, or the news entities that were colluding with certain corporate favored political campaigns?
