Disinformation comes in all forms and from a variety of sources. Lately, folks on the interweb seem to be getting a bit of kick out of the proclamation that John Lennon was a conservative. Yes, the man President Nixon and his cabal tried so mightily to deport, was actually a dyed in the wool Republican! But it is disinformation, which in this case also doubles as a synonym for outright lies.
Real god fearing Republicans, who still haven't forgave or never bothered to research Lennon's statement about The Beatles being bigger than Jesus Christ, were able to squeal merrily that Lennon was a closet conservative.
