Detail from book cover.

Shortly after assuming office in January 2017, President Donald Trump accused the press of being an "enemy of the American people." This rhetoric echoes dangerous dictators of the 20th century who sought to delegitimize the work of the press as "fake news" and create confusion in the public mind about what's real and what isn't; what can be trusted and what can't be.

How does this administration's attack on the press affect the future of American democracy?
