The Post-Truth Republicans

In 1%, Economics, Justin on December 23, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Krugman’s epic take down of Mitt Romney and the fact-challenged Republican field.

The Post-Truth Campaign – NYTimes.com.

“If Mr. Romney is in fact the Republican presidential nominee, he will make wildly false claims about Mr. Obama and, occasionally, get some flack for doing so. But news organizations will compensate by treating it as a comparable offense when, say, the president misstates the income share of the top 1 percent by a percentage point or two…The end result will be no real penalty for running an utterly fraudulent campaign. As I said, welcome to post-truth politics.”

I feel like starting a slow clap for Krugman, anyone with me?
