Episode Description:

Part of the MIT Essential Knowledge Series, McIntyre's book is a study both in history and today's brutal discourse. Fake news has been around forever, so is today's proliferation of lies any different? He finds that real journalism began around the late 1800s but is now under a new threat. He is interested in the way people avoid data to deny science. An important show for today.
