Whither Verity?

Another article that I found really interesting, and my second link to a story by Gregg Easterbrook. Ostensibly a review of Ralph Keyes' book "The Post-Truth Era," it addresses issues that have been mystifying some of us about why the facts don't seem to get in the way of successful politicking when it comes to shaping public opinion, especially when we're supposed to be such media-savvy folks these days.

Good stuff.
