Quote Of The Day, February 16, 2017
“Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day.”
— Thomas Jefferson, in 1807, when the standards of journalism were almost identical to those extant 210 years later.
