The False Truth

We have all been seeing how social media is now one of the most if not the most powerful weapon for the society.

Individuals tend to believe what they see in the media but does the media tends to show the truth? Can the truth be altered on social media? These are the questions we got to ask ourselves.

In Mauritius, politics has for the last few years been using social media to influence individuals. But can this use of social media be proved to be dangerous? Can it be a powerful weapon to defeat the truth? We have seen recently a lawyer who has been in the limelight the last few months. It was broadcasted live that he was taken to custody by the police at 2 am for a minor alleged offence.
Now the police said, the lawyer, specifically asked to provide a statement at that time, taken into consideration that he is a public figure. On the other side, the lawyer said he had no idea of that, and the police came to his residence at that time and took him in for questioning.

Which is the truth? Can we agree that both can be can obviously be distorted? How can you know the truth when both parties are claiming telling the truth?
