Misinformation. Disinformation. Lies in politics have reached levels never witnessed before. The book is a fascinating investigation into the history of organized misinformation in politics. It’s especially relevant in today’s post-truth political landscape. And, it should come as no surprise to watchers of the broken political process in the United States — organized misinformation is a large and ever-growing industry.
“Ari Rabin-Havt and Media Matters for America present a revelatory history of this industry—which they’ve dubbed Lies, Incorporated—and show how it has crippled legislative progress on issues including tobacco regulation, public health care, climate change, gun control, immigration, abortion, and same-sex marriage.”
