Sorry, I must be on the wrong forum.
Subterfuge. I wouldn't even accord the term "news". I still don't think most tabloids fall under that category. My understanding of tabloids (the popular ones, at least) is that, while the witnesses may be deceitful, the reporters are just printing what they hear.
ahh... the bane of any rational and logical conversation: ambiguous terms.
Did Norm Macdonald coin the term "fake news" on SNL? If he did, then it's got a definite definition: made-up news. The Onion and the Daily Show fall under the same category. We can extend the definition to say, "Fake news is made-up news for entertainment, meant to be taken as fiction." Tabloids don't count, because their stories aren't made out of whole cloth.

This isn't really the issue I have with the whole email shindig. The issue I have is why-the-fark-would-you-have-a-mail-server-in-your-basement. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to host a mail server on a machine in her basement unless she's a tech junkie that wants to learn the ins and outs of Postfix. Is Hillary a closet Linux nerd? If not, my conclusion is that she requires privacy beyond that which is available from services like Google Apps or even the...
