United against misinformation

Misinformation is false or inaccurate information: getting the facts wrong. Disinformation is false information which is deliberately intended to mislead: intentionally misstating the facts.

The spread of misinformation and disinformation has affected our ability to improve public health, address climate change, maintain a stable democracy, and more. By providing valuable insight into how and why we are likely to believe misinformation and disinformation, psychological science can inform how we protect ourselves against its ill effects.

Journalism ethics and standards are principles of good practice. Professional journalism associations, individual news organizations, and journalists themselves often have their own "code of ethics;" however, most share these basic principles: truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability.
