We live in the world where all wars will begin as cyber wars… It’s the combination of hacking and massive, well-coordinated disinformation campaigns.
We can’t have, like, willy-nilly proliferation of fake news. That’s crazy. You can’t have more types of fake news than real news. That’s allowing public deception to go unchecked. That’s crazy.
Half a truth is often a great lie.
What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we have.
Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.
Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact on our elections and undermines our democracy.
The lowest form of popular culture – lack of information, misinformation, disinformation and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people’s lives – has overrun real journalism.
Disinformation is more than just lying. It’s the denial and twisting of reality in order to present some desired image to the rest of the world.
Political language — and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists — is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
I’m telling you a lie in a vicious effort that you will repeat my lie over and over until it becomes true.
