Frankly anything associated with Trump being "of the year" irks me (unless following the phrase "tangoed moron"). So when Collins dictionary unveiled "fake news" as their word of the year I was a little annoyed. 

Stephanie Merritt is right here. Language is fluid and new terminology emerges on the periphery of society and not on BBC News. So when we're seeing Jon Snow talk about something, it's likely not in day-to-day use. Really, if we want words that are trending with people you're better off going to Urban Dictionary over Collins. I racked my brains for some phrases that could be potential words of the year because Echo chamber and Corbynmania don't work for me either . Full disclaimer - this is not a serious post but if we're considering "Fake news" (which is not even a word but a phrase!!!) then let's push the boat further...
