Any piece of communication, message, or information that fits all three criteria simultaneously is now legally defined as disinformation or 假訊息, which doesn’t touch the word news. This has two benefits. First, exactly as you said, when institutional media make a news without due diligence, source checking and fact checking, but just take a picture from social media, that’s more clearly turning a 訊息 into a 新聞. It’s very clear now that they are doing something that’s against the journalistic integrity.
