Newspapers or internet?

The internet at this time is a lot like the newspapers of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Back then newspapers were full of stories about mermaids, monsters, and incredible things that we laugh at today. Not just for their absurdity but for the poor attempt to make the incredible believable. You had to want to believe to fall for most of the tales.

Now, of course, newspapers seem much more realistic with their State-approved lies. "Osama's recent demise" is a good illustration.

I just hope the internet never becomes a similar organ of State-approved lies. I'd rather sift through the nonsensical garbage than to know that everything was thought up, spun, and/or officially sanctioned before going on the internet.
