Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle.
The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge
with the lies of the day. I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens, who, reading newspapers,
live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in the world.
Today, of course, mass media takes many forms besides newspapers. But the standards Jefferson spoke of haven't changed.
"Television network newscast" might be substituted for "newspaper" in the above paragraph. Jefferson further said:
I will add, that the man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them; inasmuch
as he who knows nothing is nearer to truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.
