Trump is gone, however the conflict on reality is much from over | COMMENTARY – Baltimore Solar

Not exactly. That battle over accurate information, the lifeblood of democracy, is anything but over. The damage that Trump has done to facts, science, information and honest journalism is going to take years if not generations to restore. It might never make a comeback if politicians like Republican Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri have their way in future elections. And it is going to take more than pronouncements by presidents and their press secretaries to do it. A coherent strategy involving journalists, teachers, political leaders and citizens is needed. It could be a tough task given that I am no longer sure most citizens even care whether they live in a media environment built on facts or a world of ideology and magical thinking built on alternative facts invented to make people feel good or kept in the dark about what their leaders are really up to.
