Actually, it's not from today -- it's from a long time ago (1987):
"We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been so credulous. So the old bamboozles tend to persist as the new bamboozles rise."
-- Carl Sagan, "The Fine Art Of Baloney Detection," Parade Magazine, February 1, 1987
It's as current as today's political headlines ;-)
