Can some believe what isn't, or refuse to believe what is?

Can business and/or political interests
negatively affect investigative journalism,
by sheltering some from inhospitable exposure
while simultaneously disparaging opponents?

The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war,
the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture,
and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation.

These contradictions are not accidental,
nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy.

They are deliberate exercises in doublethink.

George Orwell
