DONALD ON DONALD/WORDS MATTER: "Should we journalists use the word 'lie' to describe President Trump’s most manifest falsehoods?
That debate has roiled the news world. The Times this week [Week of 1-23-17] used the word 'lie' in a front-page headline, and I agreed with that decision, but there’s a counterargument that lying requires an intention to deceive — and that Trump may actually believe his absurd falsehoods.
So in 2017 we reach a mortifying moment for a great democracy: We must decide whether our 45th president is a liar or a crackpot."
