It is interesting how dystopian classics like Fahrenheit 451 and Orwell's 1984 have become so topical in recent years. Beatty's statement seems rather prophetic considering today's news cycle. News in this day of Internet never ends. We are bombarded with real news, fake news, entertainment news, and propaganda disguised as news. The masses that consume this 24-hour news cycle are left to decipher reality. Often the reality they find is often far from the truth, if there was any truth to the story to begin with. We live in an age where the facts are malleable and public opinion can be manipulated by the click of a mouse.
