The End Justifies the Means

Do people here believe in that concept or not?

The post to which I'm referring, from Topolosky: "Had to Lie"

Some on the other side:

"Fake but accurate", referencing the termination of Mary Mapes for making up a story in the name of "truth".

"Bullshit"

"Wrong"

"I can only assume that lying, in Topolsky’s eyes, can be justified if it is done so out of necessity."
