In the age of Trumpian political-journalism, there is no such thing as the truth anymore. Facts are not verified, they are subverted. Sources are not corroborated, they are discredited and undermined. Science is overruled by rhetoric. Reason loses out to bias. Anyone with a camera and twitter account is a journalist. Anyone with an opinion is an expert. It’s almost impossible to know who to trust. What news to believe. What is real, and what is not. So we believe in those we like. We hear what we want to hear, and believe the story that personally suits us best. News becomes a popularity contest. The truth doesn’t really matter anymore. The facts don’t really matter anymore. These days, all news is fake news.
