    Someone somewhere said that information only brings us closer to our ignorance. Misinformation, it turns out, is far worse than some information, or no information at all.

    We find that to be true in national and state politics where, evidently, you can make all manner of claims without documentation. It's evidently becoming a more and more acceptable practice. It's a game of who can misinform better than the other guy.

    But misinformation certainly isn't isolated to national and state politics.
