Re: <nettime> John Harris: Liberals can’t hope to beat Trump until they truly understand him (Guardian)

Guardian is getting sophisticated, one has to scan 2/3rds of the article before the obvious sleight of hand:

First, as evidenced by credible academic studies, many voters’ recognition
of his lies does not seem to weaken their support for him.

The bs implication here is that the current POTUS lies more than the previous 44, and that this curiously elevated level of lying prompted multiple credible academics to engage in credible studies of this singular lying, and they all came to same conclusions.

The wholesale corruption of academia by the neoliberal left is not corruption any more, it's a standard. The Guardian does not need invoke 'experts' for the daily propaganda: now it can invoke the real thing, the 'academics.'
