Assuming you follow any of the national news in the U.S. I am sure you heard the phrase "the narrative." Essentially the narrative is the storyline that a particular group of people wants you to believe. For example, if you are a Republican the narrative is that President Trump is doing great things for the country. If you are a Democrat the narrative is that President Trump is not only the worst president in the history of the country, by a large margin, but he is also a modern-day version of Adolph Hitler or Osama Bin Laden. Clearly, there's a large gap between the two firmly entrenched opinions. What in the world is going on here?
