“It ain’t lyin’. It’s just improvin’ the truth a little.”
This was supposed to describe the era of yellow journalism, when Pulitzer and Hearst dominated the newspaper business. But lately it seems these words might as well describe the current state of affairs just as well.
Blame it on the disruption of the internet, foreign intervention, or a particularly tumultuous political period, but “just improvin’ the truth a little,” seems almost quaint these days.
