Maelstrom: Politics in the Post-Truth World

You’re probably tired of hearing about ‘fake news.’ You probably think everything that needs to be said about it has been said. What if you were wrong? What if those arguments had barely scratched the surface?

Marcus Gilroy-Ware’s After the Fact: The Truth About Fake News is available now.
