    Huey Long attributed to the newspapers a large numbers of lies that (the newspapers did not actually -ed) print, along with the "lies"  (which were in historical fact true) that they did actually print ......since most of Long's followers either boycotted the press or read it in a hostile frame of mind, they never found out whether the newspaper said it or not......the listener  will be so busy scoffing at what the paper allegedly said that he will take no time to find out whether the paper did say it or not. Such attributions occur in everyday life; the smart propagandist attributes plenty of rich, ripe, silly quotations to his opponent.
