A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
- Sir Winston Churchill
That being an apt statement in the days of Churchill, just imagine with today's technology how quickly lies and half truths can make their way into the minds and lives of millions of people.
Thanks to the vast media of today, misinformation can circle the globe and be acted upon before the truth of the situation has begun to be sorted out. As with Newton's law of physics which states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, actions without all the facts can have unintended consequences.
