Quotes by Cindy L. Otis  (?)

“Jefferson, too, though a firm believer in the free press, did not always care for the consequences when they affected him personally. In 1807, he said, “Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper” and that “the man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them.”
Cindy L. Otis, True or False: A CIA Analyst's Guide to Spotting Fake News

“Adams said Jefferson was an atheist and a coward. Newspapers run by Adams’s political party, the Federalists, claimed Jefferson was soft on crime. If he became president, they warned, “Murder, robbery, rape, adultery, and incest will be openly taught and practiced, the air will be rent with the cries of the distressed, the soil will be soaked with blood and the nation black with crimes.”
Cindy L. Otis, True or False: A CIA Analyst's Guide to Spotting Fake News

“Whenever a foreign newspaper or reporter said something critical of the regime, the Nazis called them the Lügenpresse, or “lying press.”8 To be clear, the Nazis were not fighting against fake news—after all, fake news was an integral part of their strategy. Instead, the term was meant to discredit actual news so that Germans would not believe what was reported.”
