Tony Norman has more. Here’s a snippet from his article:
Just as Orwell warned us, contempt for objective truth encourages a dependence on euphemisms. This, in turn, debases all political discourse. Still, the brazenness of Ms. Conway’s appeal to “alternative facts” was breathtaking in its utter capitulation to cynicism. It enraged every journalist who heard it and it should’ve enraged every citizen, too, but most Americans are too busy going about their lives to give much thought to the lies of the president’s spokespeople.
This indifference is what the Trump administration is counting on. The multiple daily outrages via Twitter, or at a White House briefing, or in a dark presidential speech or uttered on a Sunday talk show will quickly consume the public’s finite allotment of outrage. This can only lead to more indifference and a glassy-eyed boredom that will not serve us well when long-term assaults against every one of our democratic institutions begin in earnest.
