'any idea or statement that is untrue or that one disagrees with.'

I've been hearing this a lot on cable news, though not from journalists.

Quora.com:  "Electrons absolutely positively do not whizz around the
nucleus of an atom. That idea is a lie-to-children, a simplification told
[to] young kids in grade school."

CNN: "Rugged individualism is a lie."

Also v.:

Protest sign seen on FOX News: "FAUCI LIED PEOPLE DIED"


"If the truth is half as bad as I think it is, you can't handle the truth."
