    What is your, or more to the point your professor's,  definition of "fake news" ?

    Maybe try searching for "fake news newyorktimes" and see what comes up? 

    Example: 

    "l Tell the Truth About the Free Press?  By The Editorial BoardThe editorial board is a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate and certain longstanding values. It is separate from the newsroom.Nov. 30, 2019  “Concocting fake news to attract eyeballs is a habitual trick of America’s New York Times, and this newspaper suffered a crisis of credibility for its fakery,” the Chinese government declared after The Times broke the news this month of government documents detailing the internment of Uighurs, Kazaks and other Muslims in the northwestern region of Xinjiang. " 

    Or

    "After the Times tweeted a cartoon portraying Trump and Putin as a gay lovers, LGBT activist and Democratic Rep. Brian Sims said it's time to stop the homophobic jokes.  American transgender activist Jeffrey Marsh said "to have a group that's as well-established as The New York Times personally attacking you feels horrendous."  A spokesperson for the Times defended the animation."

    If you can't find the fake news in any issue of New York Times, you don't have any hope of graduating that class.

    By professor, did you mean barber-college teacher?  Because that would make sense.

  • Even the masthead Title is false.

    Throw a dart at the paper. You are more likely to hit a false article than a true one.

    You will have to know what fake news is, first, and why it is fake. Journalism used to teach who,what,when,where,why and how when writing a story. Any one of those six elements can be faked/omitted/unsourced and make the story fake news.
