True in essentials, but exaggerated or distorted

EXCESSIVE ADDITIVES:
Grain of truth obscured by thick crust of inaccuracies

RECYCLED:
Untruth that turns up with monotonous regularity

MOULDY:
Old untruth that resurfaces unexpectedly

PURE GARBAGE:
No idea how this made the papers (occasionally funny, though)

TOXIC:
Hurtful, does damage

Update: The Leaky Cauldron has instructionsopens in new window on how to access certain new hidden features on the site as well.
