The truth is buried in information

English: Krúpova hoľa, Low Tatras. Information...

Too good not to have it's own post. Related to another post on information and truth.
Has almost a double meaning. One is that we need to sift through a lot of information to get to the truth. In our 24-hour news channel news cycle world, the truth is getting harder by the day. At first it seems to be too much information. But look closely and we might find that it's really too much agenda. Popularity is one of them.
Another way to look at the quote is that the real truth is purposely being buried under tons of information to prevent other from finding it. It could be worse. That a glimpse of the truth in a pile of information may lend credibility to the entire pile.
