NWoTD - Slimformation

Today's new word is inspired by the near never-ending drivel spewing forth from Tony Snow's fetid maw. And so today's new word is....

Slimformation - passing on just enough information to get by but not really enough to know anything of value.

And also,

Mislimformation - passing on just enough bad information to be plausibly deniable. They've stopped even trying to do this since they are just out and out lying (see Tony Snow's recent lies about George Bush never having said we should "Stay the course" in Iraq despite the literally hundreds of instances it can be found online).

I suppose there might also be a version called slimeformation but that gets a little hard to parse.

As always, all the new words of the day can be found at the IP Fictionarium.
