Not Buying It
This year, it's time to get the truth back...
We are living in the era of "post-truth". People in this country have had enough of experts, apparently. Instead, we are offered alternative facts, fake news, social media echo chambers, dodgy statistics and outright lies. But, how did it come to this? What responsibility do we have to check sources, to educate ourselves, and to pay for news? How do we stay reliably informed in a world where truth is supposedly a thing of the past?
In Not Buying It, Charlotte Henry looks at the facts behind fake news, talking to the major players in politics and media, old and new. She also talks to voters and thinkers from outside the media bubble, to provide context, explanation, and, crucially, solutions.
- "If you want to understand the phenomenon of fake news in all its forms then this is a good place to start. Charlotte Henry's book is an excellent primer on the subject with particularly powerful chapters on Trump and Antisemitism. Well worth a read." - Duncan McDonald (Amazon Reviewer)
- As a media writer, commentator and journalist, Charlotte Henry uses her own experience alongside interviews with major politicians and those outside the media bubble to establish a unique point of view.
- With Brexit forever on the horizon, the topics addressed in Not Buying It are extremely relevant, hopefully helping us to navigate through the confusion that is present-day politics...
