Word of the Day: "Infauxmation"

I saw this word in an article about a video showing Michael Jackson alive (after his death), designed as a "false news" story to see what people's reaction would be. But it's really a great word, isn't it? It describes so much of what passes for "news." Judith Miller's New York Times articles on Iraqi WMD? Infauxmation. Ritual claims by the U.S. or Israeli military, dutifully reported in the corporate media, that they are "investigating" the latest war crimes charges against them? Infauxmation. The U.S. State Department is still "studying" whether to declare what happened in Honduras a coup? Infauxmation.

Supply your own long, long list.
