Sounds like something a state inching closer to totalitarianism would do.

"Fake News" is very subjective and a censoring campaign against it could be applied to anything the ruling party doesn't like.

Whether or not something is propaganda is objective though.

Does a news outlet continually make arguments in favor of one candidate and against another?

Does a news outlet give equal time to both sides?

Does a news outlet offer up opinions (socialism is good/bad) instead of facts (socialism would cost many/few dollars, according to the CBO).
