Can we simply upload all of the intolerant racist idiots to San Junipero already and be done with their milquetoast bullshiat in meat space?

Is this about all those rumors of dozens of shaved twinks paid by checks from the "Frozen Food Inheritance Trust for the Son I Never Loved" to insert juvenile aquatic mammals into the nether regions of a certain Fox News TV host whilst men hired specifically as "Patrick Ewing fist-alikes" erotically choke said certain Fox News TV host using readily available bow ties? Because those could be misinformation, but, people are asking questions and if you don't like asking questions clearly you've got something to hide.

Tucker Carlson wears a clip on.

He's not entirely inaccurate about the 'misinformation can be true' statement. The best way to lie is with a truth you know will be misinterpreted.

"Subby showed up to work sober today."
"Subby hasn't kicked any puppies in over two hours"

But Tucker is still a twat.

So much ignorance in 1 short paragraph.

The distinction between misinformation and lying is that misinformation can be true.

Sometimes, sure, truth is sprinkled in to sell the BS. But what's more salient is the shared characteristic of misinfo and lying: the intent of the sender to manipulate the receiver.

It doesn't have to be untrue to be censored. It used to be truth is a defense. If you're telling the truth, you can say it. Not anymore. blah blah etc

It has never had to be true to censor anybody. Censoring is an act of power to further the goals of the censor, not some lofty search for truth.

Hey, give the guy some credit. I think he is actually starting to become self aware. And it's true that most Republicans think that all the stuff they say is true. They don't see themselves as liars. The problem is they don't know what is real or what works. They can't separate reality from superstition. They can't separate real news from fake news. They have trouble separating the truth from lies. What works versus what doesn't work. Facts from hypothesis.

Almost none of this is true, but it's linked together with the very intentional effect of convincing FN viewers that "misinformation" is now a meaningless term like "fake news" that can be turned against the enemy.

Oh, they know.

What he's doing is trying to say - to justify - is lying. He's actively defending The Putin Principle: that truth is flexible/maleable - and no one or no institution has a monopoly on it.

His statement the "misinformation can be true" is misinformation.

And this is just another attack on the baseline of truth Americans once shared.

hardinparamedic: Wow, it's literally doublespeak.


That's kind of his thing. And he's the chubby, bloated face of reassurance that every terrible thought and deed done to make his buddies some cash and keep them in power is necessary, meet and proper. And he does so, because he absolutely cannot begin to respect the rubes that listen to him. He appeals to the dumbest ass motherf*ckers who couldn't argue their way out of a paper bag, or think themselves out a circular rut, and he LIKES being the Idiot Whisperer, because Lord knows he's been outwitted by inanimate objects before, so he's gotta get his kicks and feeling of superiority from somewhere, because apparently the comfort of money just can't reach his poor shriveled soul.

You know, IM not sure how true this is but I've heard from many people that Tucker Carlson once sodomized a pig at a frat party.  Like I said, many people have said this is true.

That must be something his Russian handlers told him while they were courting him.
 
2022-12-06 8:16:12 AM  
They're trying to weasel out of the "lie" part based on the media for the last 6 years being too weak to call Trumps lies "lies."

There's something like "you have to know it's false to be lying" or something, but from a practical standpoint it's immaterial.

If there's a statement that I think to be true because I wish iat to be true, and then actively ignore everything that proves it wrong while repeating the thing that I'm purposefully ensuring I never "know" is false, it's a farking lie.

"This one weird trick to avoid lying will drive liberals crazy!" It's a lie, you're lying. Stop lying and people won't call you a liar.

Factual information that went against the prevailing narrative.
