Have more to say here...
Truth and lies are difficult because so much of what we are bombarded with every day is pure opinion. Not that that doesn't have any value, obviously I wouldn't be here if I wasn't into spewing my opinion onto the web. However, so much of what we think we know is really just the version put forth by the biggest loudmouth out there, not necessarily the truth.
Truth is verifiable facts. It's data. It's not editorialized. It's not incomplete or censored or pessimistic or optimistic or anything else--truth doesn't have an adjective. You can spin the facts, but that only changes how people see them, not the nature of the facts themselves.
I don't go to blogs for facts. I don't even go to the news for facts. They're just not there.
