Today’s insight. You can’t control your message. You must assume others will talk about your message and spin some intent into it in front of you or around you. It will be liked on Facebook, or Gawkered or skewered on CNN or trolled by commenters or just gossiped about in between people. This makes fact based messages more important than ever. Messages laden with opinion will be seized upon. Fact based messages are potentially harder to contort.
