That seems to be a close approximation of the work done in the 1970s (and earlier) on information dissemination.
And why not? Information is does not differentiate between the truth or falsity of the content. Information, like Beauty, is its own excuse for being.
My current Gedankenexperiment is whether information must have any content at all. It would seem that it should, but recent examples out of Washington, DC, Los Angeles, and elsewhere suggest otherwise.
