Truth. What’s That?

Posted on September 18, 2019


The following discussion took place between an attorney for the Democrats Impeachment Hearings and one Corey Lewandowski:

BERKE: Do you hear that, sir? That was you saying, on MSNBC, you don’t ever remember the president ever asking you to get involved with Jeff Sessions or the Department of Justice in any way, shape or form. That wasn’t true, was it, sir?

LEWANDOWSKI: I heard that.

BERKE: And that was not true, was it.

LEWANDOWSKI: I have no obligation to be honest with the media, because they’re just as dishonest as anybody else.

BERKE: So — so you’re admitting, sir, you were not being truthful in that clip. Correct?

LEWANDOWSKI: My interview with Ari Melber …


LEWANDOWSKI: Can be interpreted any way you’d like.

So as stated in 1984 we now live in an era where peace is war and war is peace. Truth is just an old-fashioned term apparently used only for people who are not wise enough to know when to lie. Negotiations based on the need for truthful information may be an exercise in futility. What can one do? Searching fro Win-Win is one attractive option. Mediate don’t litigate is more than an artful phrase. Good will cannot be perverted or turned on its head. In the current era of bloviated speech, mediation looks particularly good.
