A Lie Which Is Half A Truth …

Comment Of The Week – Claudia Evens Says: [In reference to That’s The Whole Problem Mark, Dave]Gerda, I don’t always agree with you but just being able to say that is what democracy is all about and we can agree to disagree without being arrested and flogged 90 times. Your perspective on Banman and Mark Rushton is right on. It saddens me to see how Mark Rushton can write a column for a local newspaper and call himself a journalist without flinching when he is so politically connected to the provincial Liberals. I thought that journalists are to be politically impartial in order to be a good journalist. Unfortunately, most readers do not see through Mark’s rambling (his preferential treatment by city hall) and that is why it is so important to read the Abbotsford Today because it’s not the bull**** that is usually fed to the public by other news sources who are indifferent to reporting the actual truth. “A lie which is half a truth is ever the blackest of lies” which seems to be the practice of some journalists.
