What is truth? You can't handle the truth

My general view on information is to let information flow freely. I don't worry if someone endorses a product that competes with mine, or a candidate that competes with mine, or a religion that competes with mine. If I believe in my product, or my candidate, or my religion, then the propaganda efforts of the competitors don't matter, since "my side" has its own propaganda efforts, and the truth will win out.

Needless to say, I'm not doctrinaire about this. But then again, if people were doctrinaire about their beliefs, Ron Paul Baba Booeys would refuse to promote Ron Paul over the government-created Internet.

One issue that has caused some major controversy is the presentation of information about how abortions are conducted - something that I've discussed before. True Discernment links to Lifesite:

For what is probably the first time in history, a television network in Spain has shown an abortion on national television.

The video, shot during a hidden-camera exposé on Spain's abortion industry, shows a nurse injecting deadly poison into the fetus through the vagina of a pregnant woman, who then expels her dead child, about five months old. The doctor immediately covers the body....

The report, "Asi se aborta en España" (This is How Abortions are Done in Spain) was made by Intereconomia TV, a national network in Spain, in which the reporter posed as a doctor seeking a job doing abortions at El Bosque....

Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, noted the importance of the event. "I believe that if we have a straight up debate on abortion, on exactly what abortion is, exactly what it does to the baby, the detrimental effects on the mother, the pro-life movement wins hands down one hundred percent of the time," he told LifeSiteNews.

The site contains a link to a YouTube video at - but MegaCorp's firewall blocked me from seeing it.
