Book cover for The Future Starts Here: Adventures in the Twenty-First Century
A 2012 study by Fairleigh Dickinson University revealed that people who watched MSNBC or Fox News knew less about international events than people who did not watch any news at all.
George Mikes
“An Englishman, even if he is alone, forms an orderly queue of one.”
George Mikes, How to Be an Alien: A Handbook for Beginners and Advanced Pupils

Criss Jami
“Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”
Criss Jami

George Orwell
“The whole experience of being hit by a bullet is very interesting and I think worth describing in detail.”
George Orwell, Homage to Catalonia

Michael Crichton
“Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.”
Michael Crichton
