On Thursday 24 / 06 / 2010 the Guardian published this article with the title:

"Greece puts its islands up for sale to save economy" and change it, after being amended on 25 June 2010, to: "Greece starts putting island land up for sale to save economy"

On 25 / 06 / 2010 a translated copy of this article spread naively across all European media (Figaro, Bild, Corriere della sera).

The same day...A letter from the government spokesman in Athens contesting this article was published in the major Greek newspaper (to vima) with the title: Greece is not for sale

* For who can't understand Greek there is an English translation at the end of the video

Disinformation is intentionally false or inaccurate information that is spread deliberately. It is synonymous with the so called Black propaganda. A type of propaganda that is associated with covert psychological operations and relies on the willingness of the receiver to accept the credibility of the source.

Guardian's article was the case that the source was concealed and credited to a false authority by spreading lies, malicious rumors, fabrications, and deceptions. It was a common disinformation tactic by mixing some truth and observation with false conclusions and lies

Misinformation is false or inaccurate information that is spread unintentionally and such process occurred on 25/06/2010 by copy pasting and spreading that inaccurate information, in an amplified way, quite to all European media: corriere della sera (Italy), Figaro (France), Bild (Germany) etc.

1st, 2nd and a 3rd Correction of this article is been made...

This was the story of an unhealthy baby (Figaro, Bild, corriere Misinformation articles) of a pregnant mammy (The Guardian article) who used to smoke (Disinformation).

Such a mammy can even stop smoking and heal her self so that the next pregnancy can occur without problems for the baby. The first one instead will always remain a sad truth.

Whoever gave the individual who writes and publishes an article the right to believe that he or she is "authorised" by public opinion to "enlighten" it, and even to "express" it and "represent" it? In spite of this, it is usually the case that editorials, whether the writer is known or not, always dare to claim that they express public opinion or at least their readers' opinion. This of course is not the case, no matter what the number of readers or listeners may be. For it is clear that reading something does not mean that one approves of it and as you saw by this video i'm one of them.
