Quote of the Day (Franklin D. Roosevelt, on Repetition and Lies in Politics)

“It is a fact increasingly manifest that presentation of real news has sharpened the minds and the judgment of men and women everywhere in these days of real public discussion. We Americans begin to know the difference between the truth on the one side and the falsehood on the other, no matter how often the falsehood is iterated and reiterated. Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt, Radio Address to the New York Herald Tribune Forum (October 26, 1939)

Let’s hope that FDR’s confidence holds true in this campaign, too.
