Last quote about Fake news

Joel Simon
But what's certainly unprecedented in modern American history is the rhetoric: the way that Trump talks about the media, the constant verbal attacks and the framing of journalists as enemies and purveyors of fake news. This incident in Montana – I mean, just based on what we know at this point – I can't recall anything quite like that.feedback

Gianni Infantino

Sadly the truth is not exactly what is true, it is what people believe to be true. There is a lot of fake news and alternative facts about FIFA circulating. FIFA bashing has become a national sport, especially in some countries. But FIFA has changed now, we are a new FIFA here and we have new people. We act with facts and not with words. Let me ask you, what did they do? They simply rubber-stamped a sick and corrupt system. Where were all these self-proclaimed gurus and experts. I will, we will, not accept good governance lessons from any individuals who miserably failed to protect football.feedback

Niklas Myhr

It's a way to show the critics they are sincere and trying to take measures to distance themselves from the perception Facebook is basically a channel that can be misused very easily. As long as people are likely to click on headlines that are shocking and curiosity invoking, it favors much of the fake news stories.feedback

Donald J. Trump

General Flynn was given the highest security clearance by the Obama Administration, but the Fake News seldom likes talking about that. Ask Sally Yates, under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to W.H. (counsel).feedback

Donald J. Trump

Republican Senators will not let the American people down! ObamaCare premiums and deductibles are way up – it was a lie and it is dead! Wow, the Fake News media did everything in its power to make the Republican Healthcare victory look as bad as possible. Far better than Ocare! Why is it that the Fake News rarely reports Ocare is on its last legs and that insurance companies are fleeing for their lives? It's dead! ...they're not even doing it for the party, they're doing it for this country – because we suffered with Obamacare.feedback

Janis Sarts

Misinformation is increasingly used to achieve political ends. Technology helps to amplify that message through fake news sites and social media.feedback

Mark Hurd - Oracle

I think that's fake news. I've seen a couple of reports over the past two weeks, including that we were going to make a big acquisition. There is no merit to that whatsoever. I saw a report that we were cutting our sales force, there is not merit to that whatsoever. We're a big hirer in the United States. We hire a lot of kids fresh out of college.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Fake News media is officially out of control. They will do or say anything in order to get attention - never been a time like this! Congratulations to @foxandfriends on its unbelievable ratings hike.feedback

Ryan Britt

Fake news in 'Star Wars' is probably their number one problem. There's a lack of deep reading and understanding and comprehension. The transference of cultural memory is really, really short.feedback

Tommaso Venturini

There has been an effort to spread fake news, but not to the same extent as we what saw in the U.S. campaign. So far, it's hard to see any evidence of the impact of fake news on the potential outcome.feedback

Kyle Pope

It's telling here that this is in a political ad by the political campaign because it's increasingly clear that this 'fake news' mantra is a political maneuver more than anything.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Trump has repeatedly said that this 100 days is totally arbitrary, okay. Totally unimportant. And to prove how unimportant it is, he took out a TV ad, he cut a cake on Air Force One, and he held a rally in Pennsylvania. The theme of that rally, Promises Made, Promises Kept.' Which is better than the original slogan, Promises made, never mind, never said it, fake news, watch Fox & Friends.' . It's true. He doesn't stand by anything except the dressing room door at Miss USA Pageant. … Who needs a lotion?feedback

George Arzt

This city is the bluest of the blue. That's why he is holding rallies in other places. He's trying to build an image where all reports of his unpopularity are fake news and it's hard to do that when there are thousands of people in the streets yelling epithets at him.feedback

Kelvin MacKenzie

I think the fake news headline that would give this country the most joy would be 'Jeremy Corbyn Knifed to Death by an Asylum Seeker.feedback

Michael Glassner

It is absolutely shameful to see the media blocking the positive message that President Trump is trying to share with the country. CNN "takes issue with the ad's message calling out the mainstream media for peddling fake news and not reporting on the fact that President Trump is making America great again.feedback

Bill Ackman

There was all this news agitated by a short seller. Fake news.feedback

Michael Glassner

This is censorship pure and simple. By rejecting our ad, CNN has proven that it supports censorship is biased and fears an opposing point of view. President Trump's loyal supporters know the truth: The mainstream media mislead, misguide, deceive, and distract. CNN epitomizes the meaning of fake news and has proven it by rejecting our paid campaign ad.feedback

Jimmy Wales

The real impetus for this was fake news. We want people to get behind topics, and then we'll hire staff to cover them.feedback

Gerry McCann

I think in this era of 'fake news' it is extremely topical and I think people just need to think twice before they write and the effects it has. I'm sure it is a very small minority of people who spend their time doing it, but it has totally inhibited what we do. Personally, we don't use social media, although we have used it in Madeleine's campaign. But for our twins who are growing up in an era where mobile technology is used all the time, we don't want them not to be able to use it in the same way that their peers do.feedback

George W. Bush

You guys would always sneak up on me with 'gotcha' questions like 'Why are we going to war? Gotcha' and 'Why did you not respond to Hurricane Katrina? Gotcha'. I just wish someone had told me all you had to say was 'fake news' over and over again. That could be your answer to everything.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Media outlets like CNN and MSNBC are fake news. Fake News. And they're sitting and they're wishing in Washington - they're watching right now - they would love to be with us tonight. But they're trapped at the dinner, which will be very, very boring. Their priorities are not my priorities, and they're not your priorities, believe me.feedback

Jeff Mason

The press is still in the White House Briefing Room, and we are still on Air Force One. Nevertheless, we cannot ignore the rhetoric from the president about who we are and what we do. Freedom of the press is a building block of our democracy. Seeking to undermine that is dangerous to a healthy republic. We are not 'fake news, failing news organizations' and 'the enemy of the American people.feedback

Gerry McCann

I don't want to dwell on the negative aspects too long, but I think in this era of 'fake news' it is extremely topical and I think people just need to think twice before what they write and the effects it has.feedback

Richard Blumenthal

The failing @nytimes does major FAKE NEWS China story saying 'Mr. Xi has not spoken to Mr. Trump since Nov. 14.' We spoke at length yesterday!feedback

Suzanne Moore

Companies such as Apple and Facebook are helping female employees put off motherhood in the name of empowerment. But these women are being dealt a dodgy hand. Although you may want one, you do not need a relationship with a man to have a baby. You need money and time. You can buy sperm; sometimes it even comes for free. These are the new facts of life. Or, rather, the alternative facts that we are sold in the name of that moronic catch-all “empowerment”. You can empower yourself as a woman by pretending that you can make any choice you like regarding fertility, when you like. Just like men do. But to think such female autonomy is now the reality is fundamentally disempowering, because it is not true.feedback

Dan Collins

The risk is what happened in America. The top 20 fake news stories in the last three months of the election were shared more than the top 20 most shared stories that were true. The danger is, if for many people the main source of news is Facebook and if the news they get on Facebook is mostly fake news, they could be voting based on lies.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

You're saying it's a falsehood. And they're giving – Sean Spicer, our press secretary – gave alternative facts.feedback

Chuck Todd

Alternative facts are not facts, they're falsehoods.feedback

Jimmy Wales

This will be the first time that professional journalists and citizen journalists will work side-by-side as equals writing stories as they happen, editing them live as they develop, and at all times backed by a community checking and rechecking all facts. Someone I know convinced me to give Mr Trump 100 days before making my mind up, but then on day one Kellyanne Conway came out and said her 'alternative facts' line. That was when I really decided to move forward.feedback

Jimmy Wales

If you take a look at Wikipedia, it's noisy and not a perfect place, but for true fake news, there's been almost no impact on the Wikipedia community. The volunteers are experienced enough to know it's nonsense, and have an ethos saying: 'No, we're here for neutral facts': that community knows it from the ground up. If you take as an example the bitcoin community, they're a very active and obsessed community. There's a lot of news that comes out in the field, and I think they'd love to be able to raise money to hire a journalist and put them on the bitcoin/blockchain beat.feedback

Scott Baio

I'm sorry if that's cold, but God gave you a brain, gave you the will to live and thrive and you gotta take care of yourself. This was before the cause of death was announced stating stage 4 cancer. Now it seems every news outlet & tabloid wants to paint a different picture of me and of what really happened. They're stating that I'm saying drugs caused her to die after it was reported stage 4 cancer. This is so wrong! Now I truly understand the meaning of 'Fake News'. This is crazy.feedback

Ben Gomes - Google

Search can always be improved. Today, in a world where tens of thousands of pages are coming online every minute of every day, there are new ways that people try to game the system. The most high profile of these issues is the phenomenon of 'fake news', where content on the web has contributed to the spread of blatantly misleading, low-quality, offensive or downright false information. While this problem is different from issues in the past, our goal remains the same – to provide people with access to relevant information from the most reliable sources available.feedback

Larry Chiagouris

Fake news is careening out of control in some people's eyes, so advertisers are getting very skittish about it. Anything Google can do to show it is trying to put a lid on it and prevent it from getting out of hand, it will be seen as a good thing.feedback

Danny Sullivan - Search Engine Land

The response is definitely happening because of all the attention that's come up in recent months over fake news and problematic search results, answers and search suggestions. Some of the changes are already visible in terms of better results. It's a long way from perfect, nor do I expect the results will ever be perfect for every search. That's impossible. But I do hope we see continued improvement in the weeks and months to come.feedback

Nathaniel Persily

During the 2016 campaign, the prevalence of bots in spreading propaganda and fake news appears to have reached new heights. One study found that between 16 September and 21 October 2016, bots produced about a fifth of all tweets related to the upcoming election. Across all three presidential debates, pro-Trump twitter bots generated about four times as many tweets as pro-Clinton bots. During the final debate in particular, that figure rose to seven times as many.feedback

Cristian Samper - Wildlife Conservation Society

Science is behind the good news and bad news about wildlife conservation . It has nothing to do with the fake news. Science is the antithesis of fake news.feedback

Izzy Jones

I'm marching against the concept of alternative facts because that's something that terrifies me and I want to make my voice heard.feedback

Seth Stein

This is nothing new. This grandstanding shows how out of touch the Trump administration is with reality. Contrary to their alternative facts, New York is the safest big city in the country, with crime at record lows in large part because we have policies in place to encourage cooperation between NYPD and immigrant communities.feedback

Steve Holtzman

If you take certain positions – denying climate change would be an example; questioning the validity of a wealth of evidence that vaccinations don't cause autism; speaking in terms of alternative facts as if facts are things which are merely opinions.feedback

James Alefantis

When fake news collided with reality at my pizza shop, we rallied.feedback

Ann Coulter

FAKE NEWS! @sfchronicle reports vague forces behind UC-Berkeley canceling my speech. (Which will go on.).feedback

Isabelle Bouchard - Dairy Farmers of Canada

To use a phrase that has recently come out of the U.S., Wisconsin farmers are using 'alternative facts'. The Wisconsin people are trying to find an enemy – when in reality, the problem they have is that they're overproducing.feedback

Eric Esrailian

The Associated Press was extremely active during the period of genocide and much of what Americans knew of what was happening was due to the reporting of brave Associated Press journalists. You hear about all this stuff about fake news and people maligning journalists. Then you go back to this era where what we knew about World War I was because of journalists.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

There's a profound lack of empathy in asserting that the only reason why someone could have voted the way that they did is because they saw some fake news.feedback

Chris Keates

It is worrying that over a third of teachers had experienced pupils citing fake news or inaccurate information they had found online as fact in their work or during classroom discussions. This demonstrates the great power that companies such as Facebook and Google now have in shaping public opinion, particularly among young people who have never known a world without internet and who are less equipped to analyse the information they see presented to them online and assess its plausibility.feedback

Andreas Schleicher - OECD

In the past, when you needed information, you went to an encyclopaedia, you looked it up, and you could trust that information to be true. Distinguishing what is true from what is not true is a critical skill today. Exposing fake news, even being aware that there is something like fake news, that there is something that is written that is not necessarily true, that you have to question, think critically, that is very important. This is something that we believe schools can do something about.feedback

Steven Goldstein

Someone who is [as] despicable as Hitler didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death. Spicer's statement is the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary. Sean Spicer now lacks the integrity to serve as White House press secretary, and President Trump must fire him at once. #Antisemitism. #NeverAgain.feedback

Guido Beltramini

The British decided to invent an official portrait. Today we would call it fake news. If he had included a portrait, then it would have been a book by Palladio, but somehow, by not putting in his portrait, it becomes a book that belongs to all of us.feedback

Francine Prose

The uncomfortable fact is that this short-lived fixation will move the conversation away from the administration’s chaotic (or nonexistent) foreign policy. On Monday, at a White House press briefing, Sean Spicer surprised an audience of reporters who must by now have grown accustomed, even hardened, to the press secretary’s gaffes, mistakes and dogged defenses of alternative facts. Extemporizing on Syrian President Bashar-al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against a civilian population, Spicer explained why the Syrian dictator is more evil than Hitler.feedback

Steven Goldenstein

On Passover no less, Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death. Spicer's statement is the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary. Sean Spicer now lacks the integrity to serve as White House press secretary, and President Trump must fire him at once.feedback

Connie Britton

People tell me the 50s are the best time – I'm ready. That whole stigma of being over 40 and not being sexy anymore is fake news. We're more vibrant because we have experience, we know our bodies. I have a friend who says that you always want to make sure it's your life that you're living – it's a constant mantra.feedback

Preet Bharara

I had thought that's what Donald Trump was good at. I had thought that's in part how he got to be the president. Beats the hell out of me. Active citizenship is desperately needed now more than ever. There is a swamp. A lot of the system is rigged. And lots of your fellow Americans have been forgotten, have been left behind. Those are not 'alternative facts.' This is not fake news.feedback

Heiko Maas

Dana Brunetti - Relativity Media

My first indie film was Mini's starring @AlecBaldwin who knew @NikkiReed_I_Am was 16 (not 17) and he didn't mind. In fact (Reed) was one of four actresses (Baldwin) had approved and her being the only one of those four repped by his own agency CAA. It's a lie. I read it and was like, What the f–. Of course he totally knew how old she was. That's why there's no nudity in the movie. He knew before we even cast the movie. I think he's been method acting Trump too much and he doesn't know difference between fake news anymore.feedback

Don Lemon - CNN

Normally I wouldn't address this, but he has a lot of followers and people are believing alternative facts now.feedback

It is fake news that Julian has agreed terms with Bayern. Julian has never been in the situation where he had to - or wanted to - make a decision on his future.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Evelyn Farkas

Amen, Brother. Who benefits from this fake news? R-U – S – S – I –A. I was urging my former colleagues, and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill – it was more, actually, aimed at telling the Hill people: Get as much information as you can, get as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama leaves the administration, because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior people that left. So it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy.feedback

That Russian effort is before us in plain sight – in state-sponsored propaganda broadcasts on RT (Russia Today) in countless internet trolls, fake or distorted news spread by fake news services.feedback

Clint Watts

On 11 October, President Trump stood on stage and cited what appears to be a fake news story from [the Russian propaganda outlet] Sputnik News that disappeared from the internet. He denies the intel from the United States about Russia. He claimed that the election could be rigged – that was the number one theme pushed by RT, Sputnik News.feedback

Ashley Highfield

The i has bucked the trend of declining national newspaper sales. We will see growth from our investment in the i from both the newspaper and website [this year]. Amid ever-growing concerns from advertisers, both big and small, about the placement of their brand alongside unacceptable content, and increasing uncertainty around fake news, we believe our strategic focus on providing readers and advertisers alike with news platforms that serve as a trusted source of truth and insight, put together by teams of professional reporters who know their communities, is becoming ever more important.feedback

Claudio Bravo

It's all false, that I'm looking for another place to play, because I want to leave, things that are not true. I'm happy in England and so is my family. The issue that I was not playing came out, many examples of fake news have come out. Things that, above all, have no information about them. Many things also come out from this country that are not true - that I have a psychologist, or an English teacher to have a faster adaptation.feedback

Charlie Sykes

We destroyed our own immunity to fake news while empowering the worst and most reckless voices on the right.feedback

Charles Chao

Whatever you heard recently, like what Facebook started to do, and all these social problems, [people became aware] that they need to vet information: All these, we have been doing this for many years actually. I think the views of U.S. counterparts, I mean, they don't believe that you should actually manage social platforms because users can manage the social platforms themselves – the fake news can be corrected by the system. But in China, I think we have more experience in dealing with the issues, and I think we are also more aware that this could be a problem if we don't deal with that.feedback

Tommaso Debenedetti

The war against fake news is a good idea, but the reality of social media will remain the same.feedback

Tommaso Debenedetti

It's so interesting for me to discover personalities that are not on Twitter and create an account. I did something similar in 2012 with a Philip Roth account and in 2013 with a Bob Dylan account. And last summer with Don DeLillo. Social media and fake news are the same thing, but now some people believe that social media are more reliable, believe that the war against fake news is successful, and the effect is that more people is fooled by hoaxes. It's incredible, but the war against fake news is a real opportunity for hoaxers.feedback

I think the more there's complexity in the space around measurement, fake news or the more recent problem with Google, the more our clients will have to rely on media agencies to drive trust and help them invest wisely.feedback

Arsene Wenger

It is a false rumour, that is what you call 'fake news'. I formally deny it, it is not true.feedback

Donald J. Trump

James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence POTUS (President of the United States) colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!

Donald J. Trump

[Former Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it! The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Before FBI Director James B. Comey began his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, President Trump was back, compulsively tweeting - and underscoring the growing perception that his allegation that President Barack Obama had Trump’s “wires tapped” is nonsensical, his attachment to reality fleeting and his concern about Russian interference in the election on his behalf is palpable. He tweeted: “James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!” (Interestingly, he limited the denial of collusion to him, POTUS, only.) Certainly, he had been rattled by a parade of Republican lawmakers affirming there was no evidence of wiretapping. He was right to be anxious.feedback

Donald J. Trump

James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it! The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost! The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!feedback

Claire Wardle

What [Trump] is essentially saying is: 'don't trust anyone else, follow my Twitter account and trust me'. That is why it is so dangerous. In a democracy we have to have a free press. We we can joke about the term 'fake news' but he is doing it deliberately and he's been very successful.feedback

Howard Schneider

Larry Summers

I think that making policy based on facts, advancing issues based on analysis, is central to the effective functioning of government. And so I'm very concerned by the repeated tendency to engage in alternative facts and to assert things that are not supported by reality. And I think over time that will do great damage to credibility, and in many ways in governing, credibility is the coin of the realm.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Nevertheless, Germany owes…. …vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany! I reiterated to Chancellor Merkel our strong support for NATO, as well as the need for our NATO allies to pay their fair share for the cost of defense.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I'm not an isolationist, I'm a free trader. But I'm also a fair trader. And our free trade has led to a lot of bad things happening. I am not an isolationist by any stretch of the imagination.

Donald J. Trump

Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, 'went to his mailbox' and found my tax returns? FAKE NEWS!feedback

Donald J. Trump

We said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. You shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox. I don't believe in an isolationist policy. I don't know what newspaper you're reading, but I guess that would be an example of fake news. Immigration is a privilege, not a right, and the safety of our citizens must always come first, without question.feedback

Jeff Jarvis

[Advertisers] have to cut off the air supply to fake news. They need to understand the signals of distrust and learn that they don't want their brand over 'digital urinals'. They've got to understand that quality matters. What programmatic advertising does, what individualized data and remarketing does, is cut the value of context and the value of placement. But that doesn't mean you should cut out the value of quality and the value of trust. And we've got to figure out in the advertising industry how we do that.feedback

Whoopi Goldberg

Before we left, something came out on a website – a fake news website – about me. And it endangered my family's life and it endangered my life. It turns out the entire website was created by a guy who just wanted to see how quickly stories he made up would spread.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

There have been some accusations that say that we actually want this kind of content on our service because its more content and people click on it, but that's crap. No-one in our community wants fake information. We are also victims of this and we do not want it on our service. We don't want any of it. It's not always clear what is fake and what isn't. A lot of what people are calling fake news are just opinions that people disagree with.feedback

Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Consortium

It creates a chilling effect on free speech and stops the web from being used as a space to explore important topics, like sensitive health issues, sexuality or religion. There are suggestions that some political adverts – in the US and around the world – are being used in unethical ways – to point voters to fake news sites, for instance, or to keep others away from the polls. Targeted advertising allows a campaign to say completely different, possibly conflicting things to different groups. Is that democratic?feedback

Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Consortium

And, they choose what to show us based on algorithms which learn from our personal data that they are constantly harvesting. The net result is that these sites show us content they think we'll click on – meaning that misinformation, or 'fake news', which is surprising, shocking, or designed to appeal to our biases can spread like wildfire. But, we're missing a trick. As our data is then held in proprietary silos, out of sight to us, we lose out on the benefits we could realize if we had direct control over this data, and chose when and with whom to share it.feedback

Adam Rendle

There is an expectation, particularly following the fake news controversy, that platforms have a responsibility as media companies rather than neutral tech companies to ensure that what goes on their platform is appropriate, tasteful, just like a broadcaster or a newspaper.feedback

Dan Collins

Should there be an offence [for a failure] to act on a referral? That would create a massive incentive. If their sites are full of fake news, bullying … people will go to other sites. Facebook was in breach of its own community policy. Are regular users bringing complaints not being looked at? Facebook is a major media platform … Just to say this is a technology platform isn't good enough anymore … Social media is a mature industry that takes the lion's share of advertising.feedback

Dan Collins

If we reach a tipping point where the level and virality of fake news is such it is crowding out [real] news it is a challenge to democracy.feedback

Bill Bishop

The easiest sell of President Trump’s life is that a “corrupt” media produces “fake news.” After all, fewer than 2 in 10 Americans have “a lot” of trust in news organizations, the Pew Research Center has found, and we live in a “Matrix”-infused “conspiracy culture,” according to social scientists, where one is thought to be [].feedback

Patrick Poon - Amnesty International

Although mainland Chinese mainstream media always accuse Western media coverage of China's human rights record and cases as biased, it's very rare to see them use the term 'fake news' to describe Western media reports. Some party publications might have used the term but it's just very rare in mainstream media. As Donald Trump has been discrediting some major Western media reports as 'fake news,' it seems that the mainland mainstream media might be borrowing this term from him to attack Western media coverage of human rights cases in China.feedback

Erik Wemple

Days before taking office in January, then-President-elect Donald Trump shouted down CNN correspondent Jim Acosta after his news organization had reported that the highest officials in the U.S. government had been briefed on a dossier outlining alleged contacts between Trump World and Russia. “You are fake news, ” said Trump in a combative posture that made no shortage of headlines.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I am not a hypocrite. I haven't been treated properly. In light of the fact of fake news and all of the other things we're talking about, I thought it would be inappropriate. I have great respect for the press. I have great respect for reporters and the profession. I just thought it would be better if I didn't do it. We're going to spend a lot more money on military. We're going to get involved in negotiating. We're going to be able to get, I think, a lot more product for a buck and I'm going to be very, very serious about it. I think the money is going to come from a revved up economy.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I haven't called Russia in 10 years. I just got back from Russia-learned lots & lots. Moscow is a very interesting and amazing place! U.S. MUST BE VERY SMART AND VERY STRATEGIC. Russia is fake news.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Russia talk is FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The fake news doesn't tell the truth. It doesn't represent the people. It will never represent the people and we're going to do something about it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden. The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large-scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!feedback

Donald J. Trump

To make America great again is absolutely a campaign. It's not easy, especially when we're also fighting the press. Don't believe the main stream (fake news) media. The White House is running VERY WELL. I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Don't believe the main stream (fake news) media. The White House is running VERY WELL. I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it. America is going to start winning again, winning like never ever before. We're not going to let our country be taken advantage of anymore in any way, shape or form.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Nobody that I know of. We're a very powerful nuclear country, and so are they. That's why we did it quickly. Would have wasted a lot of time, and maybe a lot of lives. I didn't direct him (to make the call), but I would have directed him because that was his job. Comprehensively protect our country. SEE YOU IN COURT! Maybe we won't and that's OK. So they made up a story - RUSSIA. Fake news! Low-life leakers. Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years. Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize!feedback

Donald J. Trump

This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine. Russia is fake news. This is fake news put out by the media.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Comprehensively protect our country. SEE YOU IN COURT! Maybe we won't and that's OK. So they made up a story - RUSSIA. Fake news! Low-life leakers. Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years. Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize! The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers! They will be caught! Classified information is illegally given out by 'intelligence' like candy. Very un-American!feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Democrats had to come up with a story as to why they lost the election, and so badly (306). So they made up a story - RUSSIA. Fake news! Low-life leakers. Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years. Failing (at)nytimes (and others) must apologize! The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers! They will be caught! Classified information is illegally given out by 'intelligence' like candy. Very un-American!feedback

Donald J. Trump

Russia is fake news. Russia is a ruse ... Russia is a ruse. I have nothing to do with Russia. Haven't made a phone call to Russia in years. Don't speak to people from Russia. Not that I wouldn't. I just have nobody to speak to. I spoke to [Russian president Vladimir] Putin twice. He called me on the election. I told you this. And he called me on the inauguration, a few days ago. Manafort has totally denied it ... He said no ... Now, he was replaced long before the election.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?). Just like Russia. [T]his Russian connection non-sense [sic] is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton's losing campaign. Crimea was TAKEN by Russia during the Obama Administration. Was Obama too soft on Russia? The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great!feedback

Chris Albrecht

Fake news means a lot of different things to different people, and it's often very hard to draw the line, obviously, between fake news and bad journalism.feedback

Philipp Schindler - Google

We have to take the fake news problem very, very seriously and think about what we can do there. Fake news means a lot of different things to different people, and it's often very hard to draw the line, obviously, between fake news and bad journalism.feedback

Richard Ferrand

These attacks are coming from the Russian border. We want a strong Europe. That's why we're subject to attacks on our information system from the Russian state. What we want is for authorities at the highest level to take the matter in hand to guarantee that there is no foreign meddling in our democracy. The Americans saw it but it came to late. Two big media outlets belonging to the Russian state Russia Today and Sputnik spread fake news on a daily basis, and then they are picked up, quoted and influence the democratic (process).feedback

Ted Lieu

It's not normal for the President of the United States, within 24 hours to write about death and destruction and fake news and evil.feedback

Laura Boldrini

His platform risks becoming home to dangerous predators ... the company has to take responsibility for this. Fake news and hate go together. It is not being done as a joke. They are looking to discredit their adversaries. It is short-circuiting democracy.feedback

Laura Boldrini

Fake news is harming people and spreading hate. Hate is poisoning the well.feedback

Anthony Anderson

I want to thank Donald Trump for expanding my vocabulary. I don't do things 'big' anymore, I do things 'bigly'. I don't lie to folks anymore. I'm merely providing alternative facts.feedback

Klaus Schwab - World Economic Forum

I would argue, that many people -- with the fast change, which they cannot anymore digest and the complexity of the world – many people are going through an identity crisis. They ask themselves, what is the purpose of my life in such a world. What is the purpose if I'm a worker somewhere in mid-America and I have to be afraid of my workplace? Facts do not anymore count, fake news may become more important than reality. So how do we address those realities?feedback

Donald J. Trump

It is a disgrace that my full Cabinet is still not in place, the longest such delay in the history of our country. Obstruction by Democrats! Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave 'service' in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS! LAWFARE: 'Remarkably, in the entire opinion, the panel did not bother even to cite this (the) statute.' A disgraceful decision!feedback

Donald J. Trump

The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned! When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot , come in & out, especially for reasons of safety & security - big trouble! Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban. They know if certain people are allowed in it's death & destruction! (sic). After being forced to apologise for its bad and inaccurate coverage of me after winning the election, the FAKE NEWS @nytimes is still lost! (sic).feedback

Donald J. Trump

Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. [Richard] Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave 'service' in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!feedback

David Graham

The Trump administration has already asserted blatant lies as truth, then excused them as 'alternative facts.' Together these new statements push toward a specific pre-debunking of any media coverage of terrorist attacks, and allowing Trump to push his own counternarrative.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting. Radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland as they did on 9/11, as they did from Boston to Orlando to San Bernardino, and all across Europe. And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that. Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!feedback

Donald J. Trump

The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me. They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources! The failing @nytimes was forced to apologise to its subscribers for the poor reporting it did on my election win. Now they are worse! I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!feedback

Donald J. Trump

We have your back every hour, and every day, now and always. That also means getting our allies to pay their fair share. It's been very unfair to us. We strongly support Nato. We only ask that all of the Nato members make their full and proper financial contributions which many have them not been doing. Many of them have not been even close and they have to do that. Any negative polls are fake news, just like polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting. I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

How did you like the game last night? Tom Brady cemented his place right? He did a great job. I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies! Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.feedback

Alain Rabatel

We'll see a real wave of fake news in the coming days. I think it's good. It's not sufficient.feedback

Alejandro Inarritu

We all know the story being written now is really, really bad. Actually it's a bad remake of one of the worst stories of the last century. The only way we win is by telling good, complex and truthful human stories. No alternative facts or false statistics will defeat that.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I bet it's brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green Massacre. Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered. You're saying it's a falsehood, and they're giving -- our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that. But the point really is.feedback

Mark Thompson - Serious Fraud Office

This is the danger with fake news. Even the president of the United States can be taken in by it and end up saying things which aren't true. We're not failing. We are growing our audiences. We are growing our subscriptions. It's Donald Trump, but also it's a bigger story about political controversy and division in this country and across the Western world. It's Brexit. It's an uncertain Europe. It's a world which feels both politically and economically very unstable.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

It happens every day and night. They are producing about us a flood, there is no other word for it, a flood of fake news.feedback

Linda Sarsour

It's not the first time, but it's definitely more intense - the fact that my children see it is what is bothering me the most. They will not succeed. I have helped build a movement, I am ready for what's to come so they can spew alternative facts and piece a twisted narrative together if they want - I and we will still rise.feedback

Jeremy Shapiro - The Brookings Institution

It's harder to do the second time, We hit peak fake news about a month ago. There will never be that level of assumed impact again.feedback

Alex Padilla

By repeating false and unsubstantiated voter fraud allegations as the cause for losing the popular vote, President Trump is dangerously attacking the legitimacy of free and fair elections and the foundation of our democracy. These are not 'alternative facts.' They are corrosive lies without any evidence. Even leaders in the President's own party agree there is no evidence to support his claims since they were irresponsibly made back in November.feedback

Mike Cernovich

They think, Oh, only dumb people think we're fake news, but that's just not the case. The media doesn't realize that it's in a massive brand crisis of legitimacy. It should be taken seriously. But they're too afraid to wake up and start playing the right game.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Don't be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck. You're saying it's a falsehood, and they're giving -- our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that. But the point really is.feedback

Barack Obama

Make it easier, not harder. This whole notion of voting fraud, this is something that has constantly been disproved. This is fake news. The notion that there are a whole bunch of people who are going out there and are not eligible to vote and want to vote.feedback

Martin Sorrell

I think with the measurement issues, with the fake news issues, and the fraud issues that the internet faces, clients want to try and experiment.feedback

Donald J. Trump

@FoxNews 'Outgoing CIA Chief, John Brennan, blasts Pres-Elect Trump on Russia threat. Does not fully understand.' Oh really, couldn't do...much worse - just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?feedback

Richard Edelman - Edelman

People now view media as part of the elite. The result is a proclivity for self-referential media and reliance on peers. The lack of trust in media has also given rise to the fake news phenomenon and politicians speaking directly to the masses. Media outlets must take a more local and social approach.feedback

Heiko Maas

Facebook is earning an awful lot of money with fake news. A company that earns billions from the internet also has a social responsibility. Prosecutable defamation must be deleted immediately, once reported. It needs to be made easier for users to report fake news.feedback

Donald J. Trump

CNN is in a total meltdown with their FAKE NEWS because their ratings are tanking since election and their credibility will soon be gone! Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans - FAKE NEWS! Russia says nothing exists. Probably... [sic].feedback

Donald J. Trump

FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT! James Clapper called me yesterday to denounce the false and fictitious report that was illegally circulated. Made up, phony facts. Too bad!feedback

Sean Spicer

The fact Buzzfeed and CNN made the decision to run with this unsubstantiated claim is a sad, pathetic attempt to get clicks. For all of the talk about fake news, this political witch hunt by some in the media is based on flimsy reporting and is frankly shameful and disgraceful.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I'm not going to give you a question. You are fake news! The fact that BuzzFeed and CNN made the decision to run with this unsubstantiated claim is a sad and pathetic attempt to get clicks. Greatest job producer God ever created. We're going to create jobs. I said that I will be the greatest jobs producer that God ever created. And I mean that, I'm going to work very hard on that.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think it's a disgrace that information would be let out. I saw the information, I read it outside of that meeting, it's all fake news, phoney stuff, it didn't happen…It was a group of opponents who got together – sick people – and they put that crap together.feedback

Donald J. Trump

FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT! I win an election easily, a great 'movement' is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state! Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to 'leak' into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?feedback

Josh Earnest

There's a discussion of this fake news phenomenon in the report as well. It's important to understand that the report that was compiled by the intelligence community goes beyond just the malicious cyber activity that Russia engaged in.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING! I win an election easily, a great 'movement' is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state! Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to 'leak' into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?feedback

Yuri Felshtinsky

During the U.S. campaign Russia created a very powerful tool to influence elections. This tool, including hacking and the creation of web sites involved in publishing fake news, will now be used everywhere.feedback

David Kostin - Goldman Sachs Group

In the realm of investing, an example of 'fake news' is the claim by some market participants that a 'great rotation' will take place from bonds to stocks. Despite a sharp rise in interest rates during the past six months and a drop in the market value of debt holdings, we expect minimal asset rotation away from debt and into equities during 2017.feedback

Kevin Pho

When fake news is retracted, people often can't tell the difference between the truth and the myth.feedback

Heidi Beirich - Southern Poverty Law Center

Facebook is getting slaughtered on the fake news front, but in many ways, this Google problem is more insidious. People might assume that what they're getting is vetted, and that certainly is not the case. You can go down a rabbit hole of hate because they're going to keep providing it to you.feedback

Carl Woog

This story is not true and appears to be yet another example of so-called fake news. The president wishes service members celebrating around the world a Merry Christmas and thanks them for what they do every day to defend the United States.feedback

Mark Testoni

We've seen improvement in some cases already. Clickbait was a big issue over the last year, which is in the same area as (fake news). And through some of the algorithms, some of that has been significantly reduced.feedback

Jim Cramer

He contradicted a previous guest, said the guest didn't know what he was talking about. Look, you can say what you want. There's fake news, real news, there's Reddit, there's sites. Say whatever you want. I don't know. I'm stuck with the facts.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

On a number of occasions now your paper has quoted me as saying: 'When I go into Downing Street, they do what I say; when I go to Brussels, they take no notice'. There is much fake news published about me, but let me make clear that I have never uttered those words. I have made it a principle all my life never to ask for anything from any prime minister.feedback

Paul Horner

They just write it just to write fake news, like there's no purpose, there's no satire, there's nothing clever. All the stories I wrote were to make Trump's supporters look like idiots for sharing my stories.feedback

Mike Caufield

To put this in perspective, if you combined the top stories from the Boston Globe, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and LA Times, they still had only 5 percent the viewership of an article from a fake news (site).feedback

Jenni Sargent

Fake news will definitely be a major problem in the lead up to both French and German elections. We are very carefully monitoring the potential strategies that will be employed to disrupt, distract and confuse.feedback

Pablo Suárez

It's not exactly clear what exposure people got to fake news [during the US election] and this is an active area of research. It's difficult to get hold of data from Facebook and that's one of the main obstacles to giving a full answer.feedback

Jenni Sargent

There's a skill to this which means if every single news story on your fake news website is fake then instantly readers are going to become suspicious. So the skill here is to copy and paste very reputable news stories which have been reported elsewhere but in among those is your fake news story which just adds to the confusion.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Reports by @CNN that I will be working on The Apprentice during my Presidency, even part time, are rediculous (sp.) & untrue - FAKE NEWS!feedback

Mike Walsh

From the fake news issue, we potentially see the future of news, which is algorithms and human beings working together, where the job of humans is designing the parameters and boundary conditions that drive algorithms.feedback

Simon Hegelich

Merkel is really interested in the topic of bots and fake news and hate speech on the Internet and she's very well informed.feedback

Walter Isaacson

I sometimes wonder whether humanity can survive the internet. It's been such a wonderful 20-year, 30-year run on the internet, and now you see the proliferation of fake news, hate sites, that sort of thing.feedback

Fil Menczer

One of the incentives for a good portion of fake news is money. This could cut the income that creates the incentive to create the fake news sites.feedback

Sundar Pichai - Google

You know, I think fake news as a whole could be an issue. From our perspective, there should just be no situation where fake news gets distributed, so we are all for doing better here. So, I don't think we should debate it as much as work hard to make sure we drive news to its more trusted sources, have more fact checking and make our algorithms work better, absolutely.feedback

Fil Menczer

What if it is a site with some real information and some fake news? It requires specialised knowledge and having humans (do it) doesn't scale.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

After the election, many people are asking whether fake news contributed to the result, and what our responsibility is to prevent fake news from spreading. These are very important questions and I care deeply about getting them right. I want to do my best to explain what we know here.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We don't want any hoaxes on Facebook. Our goal is to show people the content they will find most meaningful, and people want accurate news. We have already launched work enabling our community to flag hoaxes and fake news, and there is more we can do here. We have made progress, and we will continue to work on this to improve further.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

The quickest way to refute that this surely had no impact, is why would you think there's fake news on one side and not the other. We study this, we know this is a small volume.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

The idea that fake news on Facebook influenced the election in any way is a pretty crazy idea. I think there is a certain profound lack of empathy in asserting that the only reason someone could have voted the way they did is because they saw fake news. If you believe that then I don't think you have internalized the message Trump supporters are trying to send in this election.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I want you to teach the Taksin protesters a lesson in a democratic way, through the local elections which will be held in seven months. You will give the answer in the elections to those who promoted fake news in the country and in the world, because there are some people who do not want Turkey to grow, or be strong.feedback
