During next few months and before the general election, there will be plenty of intentionally false information and propaganda.

Liars continually rely on their lies by repeating and yelling those lies until they are accepted by the feeble minded masses.

There are gaps in our understanding of how and why digital misinformation propagates. To help design effective interventions to minimize the spread of falsehoods, researchers need data and transparency from online platforms. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-024-01618-z

Disinformation is providing information that has been deliberately falsified. Misinformation is the practice of false or inaccurate information that is communicated regardless of an intention to deceive.

Disinformation is lying.. It is the deliberate use of misinformation.. Most disinformation is propaganda.

Misinformation is information whose inaccuracy is unintentional. This includes information reported in error.

False stories that appear to be news, intentionally spread on the internet or using other media, usually created to influence political views or as a joke


Persuasion campaigns that are deemed manipulative or deceitful. It is the spreading of rumors, false or correct information, or an idea, in order to influence the opinion of society.


a person orchestrates deceptions and inaccurately narrates events to the extent that their victim stops trusting their own judgments and perceptions.

Our suggestion is to stick to long established news organizations. If you don’t read similar versions of any breaking news story on either or preferably both of these nearly two hundred year old organizations, then chances are that is  incorrect information. Both are considered to be the supermarket of news and information content.
