A lucid, practical, and concise guide for citizens who want to cut through the lies in this era of “fake news” and “alternative facts.”

As recent national events have proven, the floodgates have opened and the political terrain is shifting rapidly with the dangerous concept of “alternative facts” supplanting actual facts at the highest levels of our government and in new media sources that are intentionally designed to spread obfuscation and lies. This brief, accessible citizen’s guide helps you fight this deeply troubling trend and ensure that truth is not a permanent casualty. Written by Capitol Hill veteran and longtime journalist Bruce Bartlett, The Truth Matters teaches you how to drive through a media environment littered with potholes and other dangers, providing actionable tips, tricks, recommendations, and shortcuts for both casual news consumers and journalists.
