Down the ol’ MSM memory hole.

Fiction meets reality. Welcome to the party, Comrade Westbrook. Where you been?

FYI:

In the book 1984 what is a memory hole?

Answer: In Nineteen Eighty-Four, a Memory Hole is a small chute in the wall that is used to carry documents down a warm current of air into an incinerator. These devices are found in the Ministry of Truth, where Outer Party members can destroy evidence of a different past using them. For example, a newspaper article that proves that the Party broke a promise will be destroyed using a Memory Hole. There is also a use of Doublethink in this device’s name, as it is used to destroy memories of the past.

I thought I was in the United States of America.

I read Orwell’s 1984, more than once. I thought it was satire, too.

That’s what I get for being an optimist.
