Something that intentionally misleads or distracts from the real problem, matter at hand, or important issue. It may be an emotional issue, logical fallacy or a literary device that leads readers, audiences or participants towards a false conclusion. When two people are disagreeing over who is to blame for a problem, one party will often accuse the other or divert attention from themselves using one or several red herrings.
