“America seems more and more unable to deal with reality. So many people inhabit a closed belief system on whose door they have hung the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign, that they pick and choose only those facts that will serve as building blocks for walling them off from uncomfortable truths. Any journalist whose reporting threatens that belief system gets sliced and diced by its apologists and polemicists.”
