Should we journalists use the word “lie” to describe President Trump’s most manifest falsehoods?

That debate has roiled the news world. The Times this week used the word “lie” in a front-page headline,
and I agreed with that decision, but there’s a counterargument that
lying requires an intention to deceive — and that Trump may actually
believe his absurd falsehoods.
