The “Narrative” Is Killing Us

“The truth has been politicized in America, and this is absolutely a war against the public good. Something is either true or not, and whether that truth helps or hurts someone politically (or any other way) should play no part in making accurate information available to the public. Oh, but it does. I’m not naive enough to expect politicians or corporate bigwigs to routinely fall on their swords exposing fraud or falsehood in their ranks (though some honorable people certainly do); greed and lust for power have been around as long as there have been human beings. But there was a time when the pursuit of truth was an express aspiration of journalism.” (09/07/23)
