Is the term ‘fake news’ adequate or misleading?

Definition by the European Commission Code of Practice on Disinformation:

“As provided under the Commission's Communication, for the purpose of this Code, the Commission as well as the High Level Expert Group in its report define "Disinformation" as "verifiably false or misleading information" which, cumulatively,
(a) "Is created, presented and disseminated for economic gain or to intentionally deceive the public"; and
(b) "May cause public harm", intended as "threats to democratic political and policymaking processes as well as public goods such as the protection of EU citizens' health, the environment or security".
The notion of "Disinformation" does not include misleading advertising, reporting errors, satire and parody, or clearly identified partisan news and commentary, and is without prejudice to binding legal obligations, self-regulatory advertising codes, and standards regarding misleading advertising.”
