Charts on Disinformation
Disinformation is defined as "verifiably false or misleading information" which, cumulatively, "is created, presented and disseminated for economic gain or to intentionally deceive the public"; and "may cause public harm", intended as "threats to democratic political and policymaking processes as well as public goods such as the protection of EU citizens' health, the environment or security".
The notion of "Disinformation" does not include misleading advertising, reporting errors, satire and parody, or clearly identified partisan news and commentary, and is without prejudice to binding legal obligations, self-regulatory advertising codes, and standards regarding misleading advertising.
This definition has been proposed under the European Commission’s Communication "Tackling online disinformation: a European approach" and by the High-Level Group on Fake News and Disinformation.
In 2018, to address the spread of online disinformation and fake news, online platforms Facebook, Google and Twitter, Mozilla, advertisers and advertising industry signed a Code of Practice on Disinformation. The Code applies the same definition as a basis of their commitment.
