Brookings Institution: “Covering Politics in a ‘Post-Truth’ America.”
“Journalism has never been better,” writes Susan B. Glasser in a new report for the Brookings Institution. “So why does it seem to matter so little?”
Glasser isn’t nostalgic for the days of print newspapers and evening news. Journalism is better, and more inclusive, thanks to decades of disruption.
“The media scandal of 2016 isn’t so much about what reporters failed to tell the American public; it’s about what they did report on, and the fact that it didn’t seem to matter.”
