Sighting Report #3

A search of Google for postings during the last 24 hours indicates that the false Goebbels quote is flying around cyberspace.

It was used, and then apparently removed, on the right-leaning White House Dossier website.

It appeared on Digg in response to an article titled, "Drug Czar Claims Hemp Fiber Contains THC."

Harry Hopkins used the quote in his letter to the editor of the Bloomington, Indiana Herald Times. That paper's website makes it difficult to tell what Mr. Hopkins was responding to! Maybe that's not even important since Goebbel's non-quote seems to work for any situation of someone not agreeing with what someone else has said--especially the media.

Bruno Korschek used the quote in an article on ArticleSnatch titled, "Orwell, Goebbels, And Obama -- The Triumvirate Of Language Control." Mr. Korschek is the author of the book Love My Country, Loathe My Government.

Finally, the website "Evolution--No Intelligence Allowed" used it in an article titled "Evolution: Fact, theory, Hypothesis" to discuss scientific theory, models, and facts.
