Post Truth: The New War on Truth and How to Fight Back
What is it?
So we are now in what journalists call the Post-Truth era― a time in which the art of lying is shaking the very foundations of democracy and the world as we know it. The Brexit vote; Donald Trump’s victory; the rejection of climate change science; the vilification of immigrants; all have been based on the power to evoke feelings and not facts. So what does it all mean and how can we champion truth in a time of lies and ‘alternative facts’?
In this eye-opening book by one of the UKs most respected political journalists, Post-Truth is distinguished from a long tradition of political lies, exaggeration and spin. It's not the deception of politicians that's new, but the public’s response to it and the ability of new technologies and social media to manipulate, polarise and entrench opinion. Where trust has evaporated, conspiracy theories thrive, the authority of the media wilt and emotions matter more than facts. In this fascinating and timely book Matthew d’Ancona investigates how we got here, why quiet resignation is not an option and how we can and must fight back.
