The definition of the word truth

3 posts / 0 new

While I was visiting Vancouver BC recently. I was told that fox news wasn't allowed to broadcast there. This was because they are negociating the definition of the word truth. Apparently trying to change it.

Fox News won a U.S. court battle over "truth". It seems that in the U.S., news is entertainment and doesn't have to be truthful any more than any other entertainment.

News is on the same playing field as The Simpson's or Desperate Housewives. .Truth is irrelevant to that.

I think one of the ways they lie is to give the impression of something that is not true.. Another way is they lie on purpose (to sell a related lie), then later say it was an accident.. assuming they retract anything (but dont mention what lie the first lie supported)..

I really do believe someone or a small group skillfully plants the lies.. Why else would big money interests be so eager to control the media? I do not believe this is a conspiracy theory, because we see the lies all the time..
