RE: “OK, Boomer: The problem with analogue politicians in a digital world,” (The Hill Times, Nov. 13, p. 9). In the article, Erica Ifill oversimplifies Mark Zuckerberg’s position as just being, “Lies are bad.” The technology expert’s response to American House Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, “Congresswoman I think lying is bad. I think if you were to run an ad that had a lie that would be bad. That’s different from it being, in our position, the right thing to prevent your constituents or people in an election from seeing that you had lied,” expresses the belief not only that lying is bad, i.e. stupid, but also that it is right to publish bad/stupid lies.
