"Political Economist at the U of Alberta" you say? I rest my case!

Ok, we've established that you have a problem with either the word "political", the word "economist" or the entire University of Alberta.
Fine.
But please stop legitimizing Trump's shrill shrieks of "Fake News!" by trotting it out just because you disagree with the article.

Fake news is usually defined as news which is purposely, knowingly false, which "contains some form of dishonesty, typically to promote a political agenda".
He's too stupid to realize it, but Trump's use of the term perverts its meaning into "any news which is honest and true, but unflattering".

Laxer's opinion piece is not "fake news".
