Truth

About: Truth Isn't Truth Where the Media Is Concerned - The Rush Limbaugh Show

After a truth passes through 100 media outlets & 2000 twitter accounts & other social media platforms like facebook it no longer resembles the original truth .  It is like passing a sentence around a room from one kid to another – the original sentence gets lost.  Changing context, adding extra nuances etc. Your original masterpiece of reasoning or account of something you actually saw with your own eyes such as a shooting won’t tell the story without lies. It is just another point of view or opinion.  Add to that the biases of those passing it around & who knows 1984 all over again.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth

true is attribution in language which agrees with what is so XOR what IS .
truth may only be that which is experienced directly in a non relative manner such as “I AM!”.

Truth Decay: https://www.rand.org/content/dam/rand/pubs/research_reports/RR2300/RR2314/RAND_RR2314.pdf

We define Truth Decay as a set of four related trends:
1. increasing disagreement about facts and analytical interpretations of facts and data.
2 We call the phenomenon “Truth Decay,” but we are not actually talking directly about “truth” in the philosophical sense. We use the term “Truth Decay” as a shorthand for the trends identified and focus on the importance of facts and fact-based analysis. The term has been used before in other contexts, but not (to our knowledge) to refer to the specific phenomena considered here. We do not intend to associate our report or research agenda with these previous uses. We thank RAND colleague Sonni Efron for first suggesting the term in this context.
3 We acknowledge that, although there are certain immutable facts, analytical interpretations of facts and data evolve with new discoveries, the collection of new data, or the development of new technologies that allow for the retesting of even well-established findings. Our focus on Summary xi 2. a blurring of the line between opinion and fact 3. the increasing relative volume, and resulting influence, of opinion and personal experience over fact
4. declining trust in formerly respected sources of factual information.
