In The New York Times "opinionator" column by Jason Stanley entitled "The Ways of Silencing" (June 25, 2011), what does Stanley say is the ultimate effect of statements that are pointedly designed to avoid the truth? Do you think most informed Americans would agree with Stanley that the public perception of widespread insincerity, in effect, silences certain speakers? Provide examples from any of your reading, your conversations with other Americans or your experience to support your evaluation of the author's assertion.
