Alternative facts, fake news, post-truth—these phrases have flooded the American conversation over the past several years. But how bad is it really, and what can we, as a society and as individuals, do to be better informed?  Taking us through real-world examples of conspiracy theories, junk science, and fake news, Stehr shows audiences how to find facts in a world of misinformation.
