Newspeak is a noun that means deliberately ambiguous language designed to deceive.

Author George Orwell first coined the word newspeak for his dystopian novel nineteen eighty four. It described a new language designed to manipulate people into believing lies. Today the word isn’t generally used to refer to a new language but simply to mean words meant to deceive.

Carl can’t bear to watch the news on that channel. He insists that their newscasters are speaking in newspeak.
