Three quotes I noticed recently:

"Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play."

"Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose."

"We enter parliament in order to supply ourselves, in the arsenal of democracy, with its own weapons. If democracy is so stupid as to give us free tickets and salaries for this bear's work, that is its affair. We do not come as friends, nor even as neutrals. We come as enemies. As the wolf bursts into the flock, so we come."

All timeless and the source? That well-known Socialist Josef Goebbels.

Excellent, Jannie, one of the great liars tells the truth!

Democracies either die by their own hand or by natural causes. Not sure which.

There's always been fake news, but there hasn't always been a science of neuromarketing (highly advanced propaganda) or a world wide web to use for political mischief:

If you think you can't fall for this kind of stuff you're wrong.

Bob, what a load of old psycho-babbling blx! Still, if you're worried you can always depend on good ol' 'D&N' - we tell it the way it is - no, really . . .

David, I give you great credit for usually writing what you believe.

Waddyamean - "usually"?

Caught that, didja?
