News media would like you to think that Obama and Bush never lied to the American people: Newspeak

"Yet Orwellianism isn’t just about big government; it’s about authoritarianism coupled with lies. Newspeak, as Orwell described it in “1984,” is language that means the exact opposite of what it says. Contemporary examples include the labeling of news organizations as “fake news” and falsehoods as “alternative facts.” "  As if Newspeak does not apply to the Bush and Obama administration, or to the New York Times and the Washington Post.
