    Paperback Ô Post Truth Epub Ù post free, truth mobile, Post Truth ePUBSad to say but books like this though valuable are destined to preach to the choir If you think we are living in a post truth era and think its prophet is Donald J Trump then you already have a pretty good idea of what is gone wrong If think the Donald tells it like it is and Hannity is a great broadcaster and watch lots of fox news you won't be moved by this book Ideology and opinion are important to you that facts of the matter and you will reject this book as another sign of the bias of academia I am sure some talking head on fox will alleviate your cognitive dissonance and sooth your doubts about making America Great again Ideology Opinion and partisan id
