The timeline:

  • Kellyanne Conway on "Meet the Press," Jan. 22, 2017: "alternative facts."
  • President Trump, daily: "fake news."
  • Trump to the VFW National Convention in Kansas City, Mo., on July 25: "And just remember: What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening."
  • Giuliani on "Meet the Press" yesterday: "Truth isn’t truth."
  • Slogans of the Party in George Orwell's "1984": "War is peace ... Freedom is slavery ... Ignorance is strength."
