The Media Lies

"But what is the difference between literature and journalism? ... Journalism is unreadable and literature is not read. That is all."
Oscar Wilde

"The news and the truth are not the same thing. "
Walter Lippmann

"You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture, just get the people to stop reading them."
Ray Bradbury

"I wouldn't call it fascism exactly, but [an American] political system nominally controlled by an irresponsible, dumbed down electorate who are manipulated by dishonest, cynical, controlled mass media that dispense the propaganda of a corrupt political establishment can hardly be described as democracy either."
Edward Zehr

"The people will believe what the media tells them they believe."
George Orwell
