Death by Information

This happened a long time ago on a planet far, far away.

This information was manufactured at a factory headed by an opportunist.
For thousands of years, people consumed true and factual information.

Information was now made artificially but to compensate for authenticity, it was made more entertaining.
Justice was also served by manipulating info.

Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations & outright lies being broadcast by….
