**NOTE** This book has been massively revised and updated as Culture of Lies: Understanding Fake News and Its Spiritual Ramifications. However, this book is being preserved because its format makes for a useful quick-reference resource.

What The Fake News Epidemic Accomplishes

We cannot point the finger at others for the problem of fake news. The Fake News Epidemic reveals that Americans are complicit in fostering this culture of lies. Moreover, it is no over-reaction to say that fake news should be among our greatest concerns as Christian citizens of America.

Questions it explores

  • What is fake news?
  • Is the label "fake news" fair?
  • Are respected news outlets publishing fake news?
  • Do Americans prefer being lied to?
  • What are the spiritual implications of fake news?

Why it is Different

Featuring nearly 600 footnotes, The Fake News Epidemic catalogs dozens of examples of fake news reports. Its index formatting makes it a great quick reference resource.
