Firehosing

Firehosing is a propaganda tactic that involves pushing out large amounts of false and misleading information at once. The term was first applied to Russian propaganda strategies intended to silence dissent and mislead the public. Outside of its literal use in firefighting, the term fire hose is also used a metaphor for a large, real-time stream of data.
