Yup , news and lies did indeed marry a long long time ago,
with the difference between then and now being but the

Fairly soon , one will get more facts in a cup of spent tea leaves than the combined media (print,electronic etc.)
At least the referenced story did get one thing correct, there was an election. Of course several alien observers
laughed themselves to death, disgorging a bevy of three headed bush babies , but thats another story.
