Carney cites lack of journalist diversity, balance of coverage in era of fake news

In a critique of The New York Times' new motto “The truth is more important now than ever,” Tim Carney contends that the truth matters now more than it did from January 2009 to January 2017. “In other words, the truth matters less before Donald Trump was president,” Carney said, noting that he was being “very semantic.” In an event co-sponsored by the Princeton Progressive, Princeton Tory, and the American Whig-Cliosophic Society, Carney, an editor at the Washington Examiner, delivered a lecture and answered questions for around 25 students in Whig Hall. While nearly every seat was filled, only two women were in attendance. Carney is a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and the author of "The Big Ripoff: How Big Business and Big Government Steal Your Money" as well as "Obamanomics."
