From Murdoch's media empire to Trump's 'fake news', John Lloyd explodes the myths and misinformation of the Post-Truth age, providing a panoramic overview of the state of journalism as it faces the biggest crisis of its history.

Is journalism in jeopardy? In a time of technological shifts and the market transformations how can journalists respond? Are we truly post-truth?

John Lloyd answers these questions and more in this global examination of democratic legitimacy, technology and the news.

With first hand research Lloyd journeys from post-communist Russia to Nigeria, from Saudi Arabia to Israel, from Mexico to China, and lays bare just how the power of the story matters more than ever.

With nuance and expertise Lloyd argues that a free press has to be part of any tolerably free future and offers fascinating insight into the trade with the responsibility to hold power to account.
