Looking for a proper terminology

Hi everyone, this is possibly not the proper sub to ask this but I can’t find it anywhere else and I hope that someone can help me in here.

I’m looking for a term for the act of leaking partial information publicly on purpose so that the public gets distracted by thinking that’s all there is. Example: X person leaked Y information but it was all a plan of the government to distract the public and hide Z.

I am pretty sure there is a specific term for that but can’t recall it.
