Fake news-er abuses Orwell

"You know that the PR industry is getting desperate the moment they cite George Orwell in their own defense," writes Tim in response to allegations by fake news producer Doug Simon that Free Press' efforts to ensure that fake news is clearly labeled constitute an Orwellian action. "This from a man that’s has built his livelihood upon the proliferation of corporate- and government-funded propaganda. Had Simon taken a moment to thumb through any of Orwell’s great literature, he might come to appreciate the true irony of his defense." (Mediacitizen)
