Ministry of Truth in newspeak from George Orwell’s 1984.
Their job was to “audit” the history and news so that it fit the official party line.
The original info.. Down the memory hole.
Thanks. Never read it....just LIVING it.

George Orwell at that time could not see the possibility of of a society without hard print newspapers and books, and libraries with hard print archives that could not be changed. Instead we are moving towards a digitized history, with Kindles, and internet files, and manipulable search engines mostly controlled by governments and a few media moguls who are all in bed together, many times for political purposes.
Changing our history will become possible by editing global media files and search engines. The Kindle history book that kids will use will be edited for political correctness etc., and no one will be wiser.
As generations pass on, history will be subject to actual change. 1984 was a bad omen of things to come.
