Disinformation: Getting Started

Guide to Disinformation and related Subjects such as Media Bias and Misinformation

What is the Disinformation?

Disinformation is information deliberately intended to misinform, usually to persuade and manipulate.

Misinformation is unintentionally false information.

Media bias is bias propagated through the media, by which the news media is often meant. More generally, other media, such as social media, books, periodicals, and websites, may also propagate bias.
