Go to Your Room, Opie! You Told Alternate Facts To Your Aunt Bea! 

Welcome to the alt-real world, where nothing is real. Or not true. Or maybe true, but not real.

In my new “Above The Law article I “examine whether workplace sexual harassment, a sub-species of sexual discrimination, still violates Title VII – as it did yesterday, before ‘alternative facts” entered our lexicon. And whether it will tomorrow.

We have a new reality these days with a new paradigm. Were we always told that we are entitled to our own opinions but not our own facts? Not anymore! We are now truly free to indulge any facts we want!

It’s a new dawn! (Or an old dawn? Like 1955?).”
