Hedging is both intellectually dishonest and cowardly.

the passive language is key to assuring those in power that you won't go TOO far in making sure they tell the truth.

*lawyer hat*: "Lie" imputes motive; "Verifiably Untrue" allows for the fact that the speaker(s) is/are an idiot. :-) *takes off hat*: Call them lies.

I was just reflecting on this evasive language that only seems to be a habit of journalists & institutions that keep trying to seem “credible” in some last-century way. Like, why don’t they ever mention that Trump has committed sexual assaults?

Is it me or today's journalist younger and more concerned about keeping their jobs and making a name for themselves than actually reporting?

It's a damn problem is what it is I listen to the honesty and clarity of the BBC journalists and just wish our guys (&gals) would take a lesson Call a lie a lie Don't let politicians lie without directly rebutting them Don't let your question to be spun away from you Do better!!!

It's the same kind of thing Trump does all the time though... "People tell me..." "I've heard that..." and then he goes forth with his nonsense and can excuse his ignorance because it was something he was told, it's that eternal "other" that gets blamed in the cultists heads.

This so much. No one uses the word "falsehood" outside of journalism. When my son took cookies from the drawer when he wasn't supposed to and denied it, I did not go, "Are you telling me a falsehood?" So dumb.

For the same reason it's apparently outrageous to publicize public campaign contributions
