It is a lovely French neologism to capture what English refers to as “false news” or old-fashioned “misinformation”.

mot-valise créé à partir d’information (info) et d’intoxication (intox) qui signifie information fallacieuse

I like the conflation of information and toxicity in one word.

And so for day 2667
