Half-truths are worth more than outright lies.

Half-truths are worth more than outright lies.


This quote suggests that partial truths, though not fully accurate, can hold more value or be more deceptive than complete falsehoods. It emphasizes the potential effectiveness and manipulative power of presenting biased or manipulated information that contains elements of truth. By blending truth with lies, half-truths possess a persuasive advantage as they selectively present information that may lead people to draw misleading conclusions or make uninformed decisions. The quote highlights the danger of being cautious not only towards blatant lies but also towards distorted and incomplete narratives.
