Mark Twain and Thomas Jefferson on the reliability of newspapers

Mark Twain:

If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.”

Thomas Jefferson (This one hung on the wall in the lunchroom of the ad agency I used to work for):

Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper.”
