  • “In the last two election cycles, the very notion that the facts matter seems to be under assault. Candidates and their consultants seem to have learned that as long as you don’t back down from your charges or claims, they will stick in the minds of voters regardless of their accuracy or at a minimum, what the truth is will remain murky, a matter of opinion rather than fact.” — Michael X. Delli Carpini, University of Pennsylvania, Annenberg School for Communication. “
