…In the battle of public untruths versus fact checking, the forces of untruth have more money, more people, and…much better expertise. They know how to birth and spread a lie better than we know how to debunk one. They are more creative about it, and, by the very nature of what they’re doing, they aren’t constrained by ethics or professional standards. Advantage, liars.

I was listening to multiple recordings of “Svegliatevi nel core” (Handel’s Giulio Cesare) and I stumbled upon this gem.

'We’re very active in digital. I have Rap Radar, [Danyel] has a tumblr with over 100,000 followers. We live, breathe, and eat off social media. We’re in the conversation. We know what’s going on. But we feel like there’s still a place for the print medium if it’s done in an innovative way. That costs money, and a lot of people don’t want to put money into it because it’s easier to put money into the digital space. We understand [though] that the audience still wants things of quality.'
