Lügenpresse

Last year’s non-word of the year was “Lügenpresse,” or “liar press.” The expression was popular at the time among supporters of the German anti-Islamization movement “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West,” or PEGIDA. PEGIDA used the term in its weekly rallies that started in October 2014, asserting that the mainstream media were liars and biased in their reporting about PEGIDA and issues that concern the movement.
