No shock and awe here. “Fake News” has just been named word of the year by the etymologists at Collins Dictionary. One of Donald Trump’s favorite terms, the word has seen a 365% rise in its usage this year, according to statisticians and lexicographers. The term has been most frequently found in articles, speeches and ideological rants — both on the right and the left — describing subterfuge in the media and shenanigans amongst politicians, pundits and news publications. Ubiquitous and utterly annoying, Collins said that “fake news” started being used back in the noughties on US tv to describe “false, often sensational, information disseminated under the guise of news reporting.”

The phrase is also inextricably linked to last year’s word of the year, “post-truth.” Basically, nothing’s real anymore. Anyway, “echo chamber” and “antifa” also experienced a huge increase in usage, as well as “false narrative.”
