The world reacted angrily to Joseph Epstein's WSJ op-ed chiding Jill Biden. But it was his editor’s piece, “The Biden Team Strikes Back,” that particularly caught my attention. Together, the two say a lot about our divided America.
We Americans are living in different realities. Our senses--what we hear from our friends, in our towns, from our Facebook or Twitter feeds, from our news sources--are telling us things that are true and untrue. Almost always they distort the bigger story. Sometimes intentionally. Sometimes because things move so fast that we have to keep stories extremely digestible in our post-truth, social media, reality-TV world.
