by Brooke Gladstone

How did we get to this point where Sean Spicer can stand on the podium of the Emmy Awards and crack jokes about his role lying to the American people on behalf of the Trump administration? How can facts and truth become some co-opted and manipulated by the government? In The Trouble With Reality, Brooke Gladstone breaks down the Trump administration's strategy of information manipulation and blatant lying. She also provides necessary hope in the fight against authoritarianism.
