"Need antonyms for debunked? Here's a list of opposite words from our thesaurus that you can use instead."

Why not rebunked? Simple and easy to remember.
And what about the first time inaccurate information was presented?
Would that have been an "embunked" report?
What if preliminary notification was offered that a report was soon to be presented (with prior knowledge that it will be full of bunk)?
Would that report have been "probunked", or maybe, "prebunked"?

These go to eleven.

This reminds me of a long discussion we had in my first year German class back in college:
