So Pilate said to him, “Then you are a king?” Jesus answered,

“You say I am a king.For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.”

Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” 

John 18:37-38a

As Christians mark Good Friday and Catholics around the world at their churches read the exchange between Jesus and Pilate on Truth we saw an example of the question of what is truth from the Miami Herald. Concerning Rebekah Jones she of the Everybody Blog About Rebekah Jones Day and her son.

Apparently Rebekah was a tad worried about some things her son was doing and called police. Police took him into custody.

Immediately Jones decided that Ron DeSantis had her son arrested and proclaimed such to the world.

Now unstable people making wild accusations is one thing but apparently the Miami Herald decided that the chance to attack Ron DeSantis was too good to pass up and thus:

Alas for the Herald there is this thing in twitter these days called community notes that can explain what truth actually is:

And VIOLA the headline at the Miami Herald changed:

Apparently while the Miami Herald didn’t know what “truth” was they could be educated with a bit of help, although the designation of Jones as a “whistleblower” is at best iffy.

Closing thought: Speaking of Pilate and the press here is a headline from Hotair.com:

Krugman: even if Trump is innocent, this is justice

As I recall Pilate decided it was the best thing to hand a man he knew was innocent of the charges against him to the mob too.

Update: Hotair has more, it’s worse

    We need a TRUTH IN MEDIA Law! No excuse in a “newspaper” or media outlet to publish outright LIES. This is INTENTIONAL! If they run with a story but then the ABSOLUTE TRUTH is PROVEN then they should be required to print or broadcast a CORRECTION on the same page or same program as their ORIGINAL LIE!!
