Entirely agree

During the conflict in the North of Ireland it was breathtaking at times to see how events and incidents were reported to the gullible British public often by the " trustworthy BBC

I remember one incident in particular which happened LITERALLY outside my front door yet the report on British national news within a couple of hours bore no resemblance to what actually happened

Treat ALL news outlets with massive cynicism- and govt " info" with deserved comtempt

Re: Fake news

During the build up to the second Gulf war we were teaching in Kuwait (2003). The BBC interviewed some of out teachers during a get together in an apartment at the weekend. they cut and edited the interview to give the impression that expats were worried. I refused them access to the school campus for any more interviews. One of our concerns was parents and relies of teachers seeing 'Fake news' on the telly and pressurising our staff to return home.

Re: Fake news

I found this interesting, but it too could be fake:-

Gatwick Drone Closes Airport.Fake News? Conspiracy Theory ? - YouTube
Latest on the Gatwick drone fiasco-

"A couple have been awarded £200,000 in compensation after being arrested by armed police and held for 36 hours over drone flights grounding planes at Gatwick Airport

After a “very long fight for justice” Paul and Elaine Gait have received an official apology for being taken into custody by 12 armed officers in a raid on their Crawley home before Christmas in 2018 following chaos at the nearby transport hub.

Despite not owning drones and working throughout the aviation chaos, Mr and Mrs Gait were arrested by Sussex Police and held for 36 without charge, and claim they still have “no explanation” for their arrest.

No charge has yet been brought against anyone for the disruption which led to the airport being closed for 30 hours, disrupting 1,000 flights and affecting more than 140,000 passengers, and the force has admitted some drone sightings may have been due to their own craft."
