I suppose if you're going to learn you may as well learn from the experts!

Do not adjust your television set.

WE ARE IN CONTROL of all you will see and hear...

If they hadn't been lying for years and selectively ignoring things, they wouldn't have to undo that damage now would they?

BBC is an expensive way to indoctrinate the youth.
Radio 4 is my only weakness in that regard.
Turn off the TV and pick up a book.

I'm surprised they'd so obviously misappropriate as to where the fake news meme arose - a thread on here clearly demonstrates the dates on which the term was most searched and the associated story which wasn't to be news . Trump picked it up later than November 9th , and he was calling msms fake news by near the time of his inauguration .
Its the sort of bs from the bbc which anyone could prove using google analytics , plus dates . They are lying in -this article about fake news. As for the proof Its already been done, months ago . But parents and schools are now going to let the bbc in to teach , er , kids , what is bs or not . Oh dear o Lord .

Do the bbc like stepping in sticky mud ?

And , surely if the beeb is teaching what actual fake news is , they're going to need to teach how the real news works ;

and ... here is an example of what hyper-injunctions are for , kids .

In English tort law, a super-injunction is a type of injunction that prevents publication of information that is in issue and also prevents the reporting of the fact that the injunction exists at all.[1] The term was coined by a Guardian journalist covering the Trafigura controversy. Due to their very nature media organisations are not able to report who has obtained a superinjunction without being in contempt of court. The term super-injunction has sometimes been used imprecisely in the media to refer to any anonymised privacy injunction preventing publication of private information. Critics of super-injunctions have argued that they stifle free speech, that they are ineffective as they can be breached using the Internet and social media and that the taking out of an injunction can have the unintended consequence of publicising the information more widely, a phenomenon known as the Streisand effect.

'Not News' isn't news but it's not fake news either .
