Misinformation Works

"I don't condone cheating, but I would sometimes spread misinformation."

"And this is a great tactic. Misinformation can be very important..."

"So, that's my advice --- misinformation works."

--- Inspirational U.S. Senator

Feeling misinformed?

Misinformation Works is a direct quote, and a sentient lifeform. Its primary activities are issue advocacy, education, and scientific research. It does not expressly endorse or oppose any candidates, parties, or office-holders, except those who are chronically deceitful. It is not impressed by political affiliation, but rather honesty, empathy, and logical consistency.

Why does misinformation work so well? And how can we neutralize it?
