The Sad Death of the Truth


(We changed our template in this blog. Hope you like our new one. We lost our company logo on the header image, but the stock images look good, don’t you think?)

Every day I’m bombarded with lies, misrepresentations and half truths. It’s really sad. Why can’t people simply tell the truth?

Anthony Weiner, Congressman says his Twitter account was hacked and lewd pictures were doctored. A lie!

Here are some examples:

  • LI firm sued for fake news sites selling supplement

  • Fraud suits jam LI copier firm

  • Tests Reveal Mis-labeling of Fish

  • LI copier company sued for fraud

It’s not just cooking the books. Some people post lies online. They forge signatures. They post fake pictures online. They try to sell you a cheap species of fish by deceiving you.

See this very attractive blond young lady – who’s an executive for OutBound Excellence? One small problem – she does not exist (Click underlined words to see the person who outed him.)

The owner of that tiny one person company (a middle-aged man by the way) just removed this image from the Linkedin profile. (But he added another young lady’s picture.)

It’s clear that honesty is in short supply today.

I’m sick of it. What about you?
