The word “Fake news” has now become a true news! These two words have been coined as Word of the Year 2017 by Glasgow-based Collins Dictionary.

“It has been derided by the leader of the free world and accused of influencing elections, but ‘fake news’ is today legitimate news as it is named Collins’ Word of the Year 2017.”

Before 2017, it didn’t event exist, but thanks to the miracles of this year, it emerged everywhere. Collin’s said:

“It has been derided by the leader of the free world and accused of influencing elections, but ‘fake news’ is today legitimate news as it is named Collins’ Word of the Year 2017.”

The runner-up words also listed by site were “Antifa,” “fidget spinner,” “gender-fluid,” “echo chamber” and “gig economy”. Another word that almost made to the list was “Corbynmania” which means “fervent enthusiasm for Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the UK Labor Party.”

Donald Trump is now becoming a trendsetter as majority of the words said by him are on the tongue of millions. Trump has used “Fake news” many times in his speeches. He used it so much that its usage has gone up to 365%. Hence it has been declared as “Word of the year”.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed because you never know what Donald Trump will make popular in the next year. We can just hope for it to be something positive!
