This article outlines steps towards a disinformation theory, a simplified and generalized notion of communication that is intended to be, in some way, misleading or deceptive. The model is derived from Shannon's communications model, but with an intentional “noise source” and an unintended receiver. Alterations of an image containing a message are used to illustrate a variety of disinformation techniques.
