FARHAD MANJOO
talk & booksigning for "True Enough: Learning to Live in a Post-Fact Society"
Wednesday, May 14 at 7:00 pm

In 2005, Stephen Colbert catapulted the word “truthiness” – the notion of an idea feeling true without any backup evidence - into the public consciousness. Salon.com writer Farhad Manjoo expands upon this concept in "True Enough: Learning to Live in a Post-Fact Society," a perceptive analysis of the status of truth in the digital age - as well as an exploration of how biases push both liberals and conservatives to interpret news in a way that accords with their personal versions of “reality.”

Farhad Manjoo manages Machinist, a daily technology news blog at Salon.com, where he also writes frequently on journalism, politics, and new media.

The 9/11 deniers
The success of the documentary "Loose Change" spotlights the thousands of online sleuths who believe the U.S. government was behind the terror attacks -- to get gold, justify war, or serve Satan.
