„What we instantly got was a freak show of political pornography: lies, distortions, and half-truths — half-truths being perhaps the blackest of all lies.“
— Bill Moyers American journalist 1934
Context: On the eve of the election last month my wife Judith and I were driving home late in the afternoon and turned on the radio for the traffic and weather. What we instantly got was a freak show of political pornography: lies, distortions, and half-truths — half-truths being perhaps the blackest of all lies. They paraded before us as informed opinion. Concerning right-wing radio shortly before the 2004 U.S. Presidential Election, in NOW (17 December 2004) http://www.pbs.org/now/transcript/transcript351_full.html
— Philip Roth American novelist 1933
Context: There is truth and then again there is truth. For all that the world is full of people who go around believing they've got you or your neighbor figured out, there really is no bottom to what is not known. The truth about us is endless. As are the lies.
