I find it actually quite disturbing, what is going on in the US at the moment regarding truth and politics.
As the US media notes, both Trump and Carson can fantasise about Muslims celebrating terrorism in New Jersey, and there is no doubt tens of thousands of their followers will believe it happened.
A Republican Congressman can allege, with no evidence at all beyond what goes on at climate change denying blogs by foolish armchair commentators, that there is a grand conspiracy in NOAA to fraudulently change temperature records. And we know scores of Republican voters will believe it.
Has regard for truth and good will in politics in the US ever been at a lower ebb?
