Advance praise for "True Enough" "The news media are supposed to help us understand the world, and faster, better, more varied commun-ication technologies are supposed to enrich that process of understanding. "True Enough" explains why things have so often worked in reverse--and why Americans no longer disagree just about opinions and political values, but about basic factual realities. This problem of 'truthiness' is depressingly familiar, but Farhad Manjoo adds useful information and insights about its origins, effects, and possible solutions." --James Fallows, National Correspondent for the "Atlantic Monthly" and author of "Breaking the News" "Well worth reading. Make no mistake: this is no run-of-the-mill expose of media bias, but a sophisticated analysis of the ways and means by which lies and distortions do so well in today's fractured, cynical media world." --Todd Gitlin, Professor of Journalism and Sociology, Columbia University, and author of "The Bulldozer and the Big Tent"
