No, not that it is Orwellian. That's the Ministry of Truth. The Ministry of Truth was that institution of information in George Orwell's novel 1984. It was referred to by its Newspeak/doublethink nickname, MiniTrue, by most every character in the story. It was the institution through which the State determined what minimum of truth would be disseminated by the rulers.
No, and it's not because I am now resigned to avoid engaging in Newspeak -- that's too Politically Cowed for me. The press lies. Lies. LIES. So what use is sarcasm like "ministry of truth?" None. May as well call it as it is: the Ministry of Lies is fine from a truth stand-point.
The problem I have with Ministry of Lies is that it is too British. America does not have ministers and ministries. America has representatives and administrative departments that are separate from the legislative branch of government. Alas, we did at one time, at least to some extent. But now the Fourth Estate has wholly dissolved into an undeclared agent of the government itself. It is the number one institution that widely delivers the propaganda that the administration wants to be spread. So I've struck upon a new name for the institution that controls all professional denizens of the press.
The old fourth estate once loved to poke fun at elected officials. And it wasn't just Will Rogers and H.L.Mencken, it was just about everyone. Nobody could be sure who in the press would go after them, from members of the Senate onto every other representative from the Prez on down to the local dog catcher -- as in "you wouldn't even elect him for dog catcher."
But our damn
More on this (as prompted by Idiot Anonymous, upon whom I bestowed the pseudonym Cowardly Threatener since he lacked the courage to provide even a pseudonym of his own) beginning here, on another day.

In later posts Pascal Fervor began using Agency of Lies instead of Administry of Truth, and much for the same reason stated above -- administry still sounded too British, plus it was clunky. The shortest explanation as to why.he sought to get a more direct label for the agitprop media was that he saw that we were not an Orwellian world quite yet, and felt it best that he speak the truth while he still could.
