Nearly half of all Americans have a negative view of the news media. Only 44% say they can think of a news source that reports the news objectively, and 66% say news outlets do not do a good job of separating fact from opinion. Now we have a president who regularly calls mainstream news outlets “fake news.” How did we get here? What is fake news? Who is truly to blame? Is the label fair? What are the spiritual ramifications of fake news? These questions and more are addressed in Culture of Lies.
