“A lie can travel halfway around the world…

…while the truth is putting on its shoes.” – attributed to Mark Twain.

On Page Six today:

“The source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation.”
