What is the difference?
I know the dictionary definition, but when it comes to the media, politicians, and others who make news happen, the lines between dishonesty and disingenuousness become blurred. In many cases, the ends seem to justify the means and as long as a person votes a certain way, or believes a certain way or acts a certain way, then the dishonesty or disingenuousness are twisted to appear to be a necessary evil or an unintentional consequence, which in itself is a lie to compound the previous dishonesty and disingenuousness.
Am I making any sense here?
Basically, I don't trust what people tell me unless I am given proof that what they are telling me comes from facts and not a political or religious agenda. Is expecting honesty and genuineness from our media and elected officials setting the bar too high? Am I expecting too much here?
