Is This Inaccurate?
I am still re-reading Phil Agre’s marathon treatise about conservatism-as-aristocracy and was brought up short by this sudden, stand-alone, one-sentence paragraph.
The word “inaccurate” has become something of a technical term in the political use of public relations. It means “differs from our message”.
I feel like we should keep this in mind the next time a newspaper refers to intentional, obvious, and overt lies by, say, the President of the United States merely as “inaccurate”.
