Fact Chucking


Last week I had a fascinating Skype chat with a former colleague who outlined to me the provisions made by Russian state-controlled media for "Fact Checking". 

Just like our own metropolitan media elites, they have properly-staffed departments devoted to this important task, with one significant difference: the objective is to pinpoint verified facts that might need transposing into more deniable statements, if not into outright falsehoods. 

Something similar happens in one or two local bufetes de abogados I am familiar with here in La Antigua, though of course on nothing like the same systematic scale.
