COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT
‘When officials use the phrase “alternative facts” without embarrassment, we know there’s a problem,’
An absolutely ridiculous article.
Apart from a deliberate attempt to malign and having no content worth calling journalism, you are confusing apples with oranges.
There is no evidence whatsoever that Trump doesn’t accept science, genuine science.
Of course, one of the problems is that some scientists have themselves been claiming more than the evidence warrants in certain cases.
Surely, the writer well knows the tiresomely repeated “alternative facts” business had to do with political matters, not science.
Gee, to understand what alternative facts are, all you have to do is read almost any of the major British papers on subjects like Trump, Corbyn, Brexit, Syria, etc.
They are an almost daily event in The Independent and The Guardian.
