Not long ago, during a conversation with a liberal acquaintance, they mentioned recently hearing some encouraging news concerning the economy. I couldn't resist and politely pointed out that the biased media reports what it wants the public to hear. Their terse reply was, "Well, anyway, it was good news." In other words, a lie is OK as long as it's what we want to hear. That brought to mind a favorite zinger from a speech by Ronald Reagan. He said, "It's not that our liberal friends are ignorant, it's just that they know so much that isn't true!"
