VOCABULARY: Dismisinfoganda


SATURDAY, MAY 29, 2021 – 01:40 PM

*** begin quote ***

Misinformation, i.e., wrong claims innocently made

disinformation, i.e., wrong claims willfully made

*** and ***

dismisinfoganda is the politicized spreading or squelching of claims without, or counter to, adequate empirical evidence. 

*** and ***

Therein lies the true cost of runaway dismisinfoganda. Many Americans once believed government officials unless/until they had good reason to doubt them but increasingly they disbelieve officials unless/until they have reason to believe them. Maybe that is a good thing as it will eventually induce Americans to ask why they continue to pay the salaries of people they cannot implicitly trust to do their respective jobs. 

*** end quote ***

Remember EPA Christie Whitman: “Ground Zero Air Is Safe”?


NOTHING any politician and | or bureaucrat says can be taken for fact at face value.  Ditto for “news media” or “celebrities”!
