Summary
"Reality. It used to seem so simple -- reality just was, like the weather. Why question it, let alone disagree about it? And then came the assault, and unending stream of 'fake news,' 'alternative facts,' and lies disguised as truths, all of it overwhelming our notions of reality. Now we can't even agree on what a fact is, let alone what is real. How on earth did we get here? Here's how." --
Summary
Drawing on such writers as Swift and Lippmann, the journalist discusses the concept of reality as it applies to the current political climate, outlining how lies are being disguised as truths and how the lines between the two have become blurred
