Lately, I’ve become convinced that politics on the internet is a giant game of telephone.
[A] game played around the world, in which one person whispers a message to another, which is passed through a line of people until the last player announces the message to the entire group. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement announced by the last player differs significantly, and often amusingly, from the one uttered by the first.
A great example is the ever-popular “genderbread person”.
