Nicely clarified.
In case you're confused about conflicts in the use of the term fake news, please permit me to explain. The two camps are using the term in entirely different ways:

1) The original usage by intelligent persons was to describe articles, stories, or reports that had been faked. That is, content making statements that are false, distorted, or often entirely fabricated without any foundational basis whatsoever. Given leverage by social media platforms like Facebook and search engines like Google, and affiliated ad networks, these "fake news" stories have been promulgated for political motives, purely economic motives, and combinations of both.

2) The usage of the term fake news by Donald Dump's moronic, white trash followers and Nazi-loving political sycophants is entirely different. They use the term to label stories, articles, or reports that they do not necessarily assert are false, but that they feel do not rise to the level of actual news worthy of being reported widely. This of course includes anything that these vile, perverted sociopaths would prefer to suppress from widespread visibility.

I hope that this clears things up a bit.

Plenty to cause concern in this article by Monbiot (@GeorgeMonbiot):
How corporate dark money is taking power on both sides of the Atlantic

The naivety of those who bought the "take back control" lies of the Brexiters will cost us all in the coming decades of Diminished Britain (Diminished means Diminished).

& this quote is chilling in the light of fascist monster Trump:

In April 1938, President Franklin Roosevelt sent the US Congress the following warning: “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism.” It is a warning we would do well to remember.
