How many news stories have you read and immediately wondered, is this for real? Have they sensationalized this? How come they’re putting that slant on the story.
The recent tragic events of the Canadian soldier shot in the nation’s capital caused a stir of comments on the difference between American and Canadian news reports. This video is a pretty interesting comparison.
Is this fudging the truth? (wait, is fudging a word?)
One might not think so. Did the US reports lie? I’m sure everyone has their opinion.
I was in a play once as a kid where my brother sang a song with lyrics that went like this: stretching the truth is telling a lie.
Are there implications to ‘fudging’ in our society? (business, politics, news, education, etc.)
