Medium Matters (truthyism)

the entire context of a statement changes when the medium it is reproduced on is different than the media it was originally displayed on

allowing the general public to hear words that were meant only for those who already agree

anything said on the radio will disappear into thin air right after it is spoken

print ads are permanent

lies from the New York Times take 100 years to biodegrade (Friedman's column take six more months)

  1. the constitution gives broadcasters the right to say whatever they want; listeners were not given the right to listen

Medium Matters was The Wørd on the October 8, 2007 edition of "The Colbert Report".
