Fake news isn't limited to traditional media information - Even Google's answers can fall into that category: 

Bottom Line: Google's "one true answer" service for common searchers has become an unintentional part of the "fake news" process. In case you're not familiar with the (one true answer) term, it's what often pops up at the top of a search page in a box when you search on Google. The problem is that it's based on various factors including relevance based on clicks for searched items. So, for example, a bunch of people are clicking on a website for that search that has false information - that info could become the "Google answer". And based on online researchers that's frequently happening. 

Something I've found through my own use that goes into a similar bucket is dated information. I've commonly found, especially with economic information, that the "Google answer" is providing economic info that's dated by several years and can be completely false when attempting to understand what's currently taking place economically. In other words, if you want real information - it's best to look past Google's answer and seek credible resources as you did previous to Google's answer feature.
