Summary
Fake news. Alternative facts. Even before those terms were coined, we had already moved to a "post-truth" reality. Due to a number of driving forces, we have evolved into a society that values emotion and personal belief more than it does objective facts. More Americans are willing to believe false stories as long as they match up with their own personal and political beliefs. How will this affect our elections, journalistic standards, and news habits? Can we ever go back? The diverse viewpoints in this volume attempt to explain and predict the state of our union
