In the NYTimes today, opinion columnist Roger Cohen writes:
Facts matter. The federal judiciary is pushing back. The administration is leaking. Journalism (no qualifier needed) has never been more important. Truth has not yet perished, but to deny that it is under siege would be to invite disaster.
Have we ever seen anything like this national alarm about a new president? For now, more than 40 percent of people responding to recent public opinion polls are still with him (42.4 avg. at Real Clear Politics).
That 42 percent is an interesting number. It’s close to poll results about the number of Americans who reject Evolution as a scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth.
