‘Misinformation’ is Crowned Dictionary.com’s Word of the Year
The storm of false information that never stopped throughout 2018 has led Dictionary.com to name "misinformation" its annual "Word of the Year." While the word has been around since the late 1500s, it made a huge comeback this year as the amount of false information on the internet expanded. "Our #WordOfTheYear2018 isn't just any word. It's a call to action. We'll be sharing the tools to fight #misinformation all day today," the site tweeted earlier Monday.
