The Ministry of Truth, 2016 Style

In George Orwell's chilling novel, 1984, Winston Smith (the novel's tragic main
character) works for the "Ministry of Truth." His job is to make sure that reality conforms to the wishes of "Big Brother." In part he does this by editing the news so that all of Big Brother's predictions are accurate. This task might require altering what Big Brother actually predicted, or it may mean twisting the facts so that the news is filtered through a prism that always makes Big Brother look good. In short, the Ministry of Truth controls all information - the news media, the arts community, the schools - in order to serve the interests of Big Brother.
