…a chapter in my book, How I Learned The Facts of Life, in which I describe how Malcolm Forbes wrote editorials and what happened to them after he did.
Take a look at this good article in today’s Times, “How a Pelosi Conspiracy Theory Spread, From Twitter to Fox to Trump.”
This is the contemporary version of what I witnessed in the 1980’s. Right wing, uh, “intellectuals” are still inventing a bit of crapola and, via Twitter, a/k/a the current version of the party game Telephone, spreading it like a virus. Except now everybody can see how crazy it is and no one with any intelligence is fooled into believing it. Except, of course, Trump.
