INFORMATION: Facts provided or learned about something or someone.
Example: ‘a vital piece of information’

MISINFORMATION: False or inaccurate information, especially that which is deliberately intended to deceive.
Example: ‘nuclear matters are often entangled in a web of secrecy and misinformation’
Synonyms: disinformation, false information, misleading information, deception
