Trump's White House admits there are two types of truth, real facts and alternative facts
January 22, 2017
Should we care about truth in politics and with politicians? How do you determine what to believe? Is it a matter of throwing a dart and letting the darts pick a version of what is fact?
You owe it to yourself to watch this clip with one of Trump's closest advisors. She defends the White House Press secretary and his apparent lying by saying he had alternative facts.
Should voters be bothered by this? When is it okay to lie? Ever? This depresses me.
My alma mater Michigan State University and its School of Journalism should make this required viewing for its students. Students there are being trained as truth finders.
