Quote of the day 17th December 2017
"Let me put it like this, President Trump: fake news is not broadcasters criticising you, it's Russian bots and trolls targeting your democracy - pumping out untrue stories day after day, night after night.
"When you misappropriate the term fake news, you are deflecting attention from real abuses."
(David Cameron, speaking at an anti-corruption conference yesterday)
