EVAN DAVIS
In conversation with Tom Clark
Never has there been more concern
about dishonesty in public life. From
President Trump to the Brexit debate,
wading through the quagmire of fake
news and alternative facts is becoming
increasingly difficult.
Evan Davis steps inside the panoply
of deception and spin employed not
just in recent politics, but in all walks of
life, to explain why these falsehoods are
both pervasive and persistent. Drawing
on behavioural science, economics,
psychology and his extensive knowledge
of the media, Evan sets out why fake
news has apparently become the
communications strategy of our time and
charts a route through it.
Tom Clark is the editor of
