"Don't worry citizen.

Winston Smith will edit that out later."

More appropraitely may be a short story (might be by Asimov) I once read based around a murder investigation in the future where everyone communicates via video screens most of the time and it turns out in the emd that the victim actually killed themselves as they were so paniced that someone was about to visit them in person as they'd developed an irrational fear of direct human contact ... with the final twist that visitor turned out actually to have been an android.
