Italian cartoonist Paolo Lombardi comments on the impact of social media on the efforts of Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan to control reporting on the protests there.
According to a Globe & Mail article linked at Cartoon Movement, Erdogan said, "Now we have a menace that is called Twitter ... The best examples of lies can be found there. To me, social media is the worst menace to society," adding, "People are being misled by outright lies."
This is an important and interesting statement on all sorts of levels, starting with a situation that I find much more common than I would like, in which someone you like and mostly agree with does or says things you really can't stand behind.
