Friends this gets old. How did Orwell know that they would constantly re-write history? How did he know you would remember truth, but be dazzled by all the supposed ‘news?’
OK, they claim it was the largest in LA since Northridge. But, hidden in the article is the first hint of deception, it was 6 miles outside of LA.
The second part of their deception? I was sleeping in the LA area when the much larger Hector Mine Earthquake hit. And like Northridge, it was a temblor of real magnitude.
Unlike the story, there have been big earthquakes since Northridge, the difference has been the recent ones are in un-populated areas, so damage and deaths are minimal.
Do you get tired of bad news reporting?
