According to this Wikipedia article, disinformation is misinformation that is purposefully and intentionally disseminated. Does this term qualify for state media controlled by dictators like Hugo Chavez or Muhammad Gaddafi?
Is disinformation the correct term to describe the manufacturing of fake news and the distribution of it through media channels? Is misinformation the outcome of it?
I hope my question makes sense. I am trying to educate myself on the topic.
