‘Disinformation’ v ‘Misinformation’

Misinformation is me telling you to go down the WRONG alley by mistake.

Disinformation is me telling you to go down the WRONG alley on purpose.

… So the difference between the two comes down to intent.

To further confuse the issue, is the fact that a piece of disinformation can ultimately become misinformation. It all depends on who’s sharing it and why.
