Information and Mis-Information

The Internet age has exploded into massive information overload. But this also means a very real potential to be misinformed too!

The Democrats are only now learning how easily a ton of misinformation can be transmitted within seconds to a vast majority of people. (Point in case , the death-panel misinfo by conservatives).

But let's not get holier-than-thou here! I am only pointing this out because the foot is now on the other toe. The huffington post kinda elites should remember that the same internet was used for last 8 years to pass a lot of (mis) information too!

The fact of the matter is, no side is above board. As a political agnostic (at least in this country), I find it amusing that people are now waking up to this mininformation ogre.

You did it for last 8 years with little circumspection. Now handle it. Don't be cry babies. Take the bull by the horn.
