    fake news

    Kommentar
    I hadn't realized before that George Orwell had anticipated the concept quite so closely in his definition of prolefeed but here it is: 'prolefeed, meaning the rubbishy entertainment and spurious news which the Party handed out to the masses'.

    I am (once again, see other threads) wondering why people think that Orwell had to anticipate anything of that sort at all. It is a slightly exaggerated portrait of the then existing political regime and the feeling of being trapped. Including fake news, holding people dumb, double think, entertainment etc. Only the abbreviations of the ministries are somewhat changed.
