Fake News & Real Bullshit: Government, Media, and Justice In AmericaFake News & Real Bullshit: Government, Media, and Justice in America
by Rob Errera

Who broke the news?
Modern news media broke down in less than two decades, no time at all compared to the hundreds of years of journalism preceding it. News delivery is a highly competitive business, with truth often taking a back-seat to timeliness. Sensational, ‘click-bait’ headlines—once the sole domain of low-rent tabloids—are the new normal. Americans love junk news as deeply as junk food. The media is a mirror, and damn, is that reflection ugly.
Gaze into the media mirror and see the ever-changing face of politics, journalism, and American justice in this collection of more than 50 award-winning essays.
