The truth may set you free, but finding the truth is like playing tennis. You don't get a hint of it until you've returned the volley about three or four times. The mainstream media counts on the masses never returning what's served up. Journalism today has become a caricature not unlike what Robert Lynd describes by saying "Research without an actively selective point of view is like the ditty bag of an idiot, filled with bits of pebbles, straw, feathers and other random hoardings."

Vladamir Zobolzik, a Russian immigrant, statistician and engineer who worked for the KGB in the Department of Soviet Efficiency before the fall of the Berlin Wall said "it is never enough to look at only the down side of a poll. One must also look at the positive side of the same question and I see in our study of the same issue reason to believe that things will get much worse before they get better, but "better" is a very relative term as my work in the Department of Soviet Efficiency can validate.
