We used to say "seeing is believing"; now googling is believing. With 24/7 access to nearly all of the world's information at our fingertips, we no longer trek to the library or the encyclopedia shelf in search of answers. We just open our browsers, type in a few keywords, and wait for the information to come to us. Indeed, the Internet has revolutionized the way we learn and know as well as how we interact with each other. Yet this explosion of technological innovation has also produced a curious paradox: Even as we know more, we seem to understand less.
"Trump, Truth and the Power of Contradiction" is from the May 08, 2016 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Michael P. Lynch and narrated by Fleet Cooper.
