What is misinformation and disinformation? What is the difference?
- Misinformation is when someone shares or gives information they think is factual and don’t realize it is false or misleading.
- Disinformation is when someone purposefully gives false or misleading information. It can be hard to sort through everything we hear and see about elections.
To help combat some of the confusion, this page is dedicated to helping sort through what is fact and what is rumor.
