Lies are always more attractive for a couple of reasons, the first and foremost is that they are designed for you. The truth is the truth is the truth, and nothing can change that, but a lie? A lie is something invented for your pleasure, measured and suited for your taste, for your system of beliefs. There is no limits to the flexibility a lie has, and it's only goal is to be effective. The truth may be unpleasant, uncomfortable, or as the liar who fights the other liars called it 'inconvenient'. Lies? They are made of angel kisses covered with hazelnut swis chocolate and fluffed with glitter and cute cats in laundry baskets. Ahhhhh….
The second tool is constant repetition. If you repeat a lie enough times it becomes a truth, and it doesn’t matter if you are referencing what you said two days ago, now you have a reference to build your case on. The news industry is full of people calculating how many times can I push this lie in every show, in every article, in every opinion piece.
The more you say it the stronger it becomes, and there is very little anyone can do to stop you because by now it is "common knowledge". It's really a beautiful thing. I was always enticed by the beauty viruses have, as they are indeed an extremely effective life form, and lies are the closest thing I can find in the thought realm.
The third, and this is the cherry on top of the cake is the complete disrespect for the truth and the people who are stupid enough to try and say it out loud. If you have seen any tv news in the last five years you would know what I mean. It is not enough to show that the truth is wrong, it is necessary to destroy the reputation and respectability of whoever tries to promote it as they are obviously sick and will probably try to say the truth again in the future. We must kill them while they are small.
The news industry is an easy prey, I know. But have you really thought about the damage they do? I hope you have now. And if you haven’t, Join us again tomorow for another exciting edition of the same old bull. And now a word from our sponsors.
