This video of CNN political commentator Van Jones saying “The Russian Narrative is a Nothingburger” is not strong evidence that the entire Russian Narrative is false.
After all, Van Jones is just one person, and does not have all the information.
But the video is evidence that the media is not telling us what they really think about the Russian Narrative.
It is evidence of intentional deception. Either by commission or omission.
This is the problem with lying – some people think its OK to lie a bit for the “right reasons”.
But when one person lies, other people take it as truth.
And then they often add their own little lie on top of the first lie, and tell a third person, who adds their own lie, and so on.
Eventually, we wake up, and the entire world has gone mad because our lies have gotten out of hand and we can’t tell truth from falsehood anymore.
The moral of the story: DON’T LIE. NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT.
Don’t lie just to fit in.
Don’t lie to avoid looking like a crank.
Don’t lie, just because you are scared of the truth.
Don’t lie, just because people will think less of your for speaking the truth.
Don’t lie to make your political opponents look bad – even if they are bad people – the TRUTH will take them down.
Don’t lie when people ask you to lie.
Don’t lie even if people say it will hurt them if you tell the truth (it won’t).
Just. Don’t. Lie
Because truth makes the world a better place, and lies come back at you a hundred fold.
