How #fakenews fools so many people

President Trump’s relationship with the media has been acrimonious from the moment he embarked on his campaign for president. Since then he has labeled news outlets that have criticized his administration “fake news.” Last year, he described CNN, NBC DIS, +2.28% ABC, CBS, +2.63% and The New York Times as “the enemy of the American people.” Facebook, meanwhile, is struggling to stem the flow of erroneous memes and fake news.
