Meet the Media

"As any politician knows, no evidence of any kind is ever required. It is only necessary to make a statement – any statement –forcefully enough to have an audience believe it. No one will check the lie against the facts, and, if they do, they will disbelieve the facts. Do you think the German people in 1939 ’pretended’ that the Poles had attacked them and started World War II? No! Since they were told that was so, they believed it as seriously as you and I believe that they attacked the Poles."
— Isaac Asimov, review of George Orwell’s 1984, in Asimov on Science Fiction.
