Over to Channel 4 News and this tweet from a disgruntled Jon Snow:
I think it's fair to say that the Twitter response hasn't exactly gone his way. Most have pointed out that Donald Trump isn't even in the White House yet and that, consequently, presidential responsibility for Mr Snow's distressing inconvenience lies with a certain Barack Obama. Naturally, some have also accused the Channel 4 News anchor of 'fake news'.
Meanwhile, back at the BBC, this morning's From Our Own Correspondent had a dispatch from the United States and you will surely never in a million years guess what it's starting point was. Oh,, you have guessed! Yes, 'fake news'. (Will every FOOC from the States for the next four years include a mention of 'fake news'?)
Kate Adie's introduction to this quite interesting feature began somewhat defensively:
Journalists - no exception here at the BBC - like to think we're accurate and as impartial as we can be. No one's perfect, but the intention is to provide clear, unbiased news. Not everyone believes that. And a mere glance at the extraordinary and abrasive press conference with Donald Trump, after lurid allegations had been made about the President-elect, had him pouring scorn on some sections of the media. He branded CNN "fake news", adding about the BBC: "That's another beauty". The words 'fake news' peppered his comments. The problem, according to history professor Robert Colls, is that in America in particular it's becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish real, non-partisan news from other things that sound like news.
