Inspired by the words and campaign tone of the presumptive – soon to be anointed – Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, I wanted to reshare this 2010 quote of Thomas Friedman’s:
“When widely followed public figures feel free to say anything, without any fact-checking, we have a problem. It becomes impossible for a democracy to think intelligently about big issues — deficit reduction, health care, taxes, energy/climate — let alone act on them. Facts, opinions and fabrications just blend together.”
— Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times, Nov 16, 2010
