Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
It did not begin with Trump. How have we gotten to this place where truth and lies are interchangeable? There are a lot of factors not the least of which is the clutter and chaos of the internet, where anything that is said has eternal life, true or not. Veteran journalist and author Arnold Skip Isaacs talks about personal experiences with leaders who blatantly lied, from George Wallace to Corey Stewart, knowing it was lies. Isaacs tells the story of truth-deficient Trump telling Vietnam veterans they were wrong about Agent Orange. Some sort of immunodeficiency of the mind. And the Boston Globe-led 300 paper editorial in defense of the media: help or hurt? Yet another heavy lift for millenials to grapple with.
