‘Fake news’ tops school’s annual list of banished words

(THE HILL) — “Fake news” and “covfefe” are among the phrases that made it onto one university’s list of “banished words” this year.

Lake Superior State University released its 43rd annual “List of Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness” on Sunday, including the two phrases tied to President Trump.

Suggestions were sent to the school before voters were able to select their favorites.

Lake Superior State spokesman John Shibley told the Associated Press that it made sense for the list to include the political phrases, considering the political climate of the past year.
