Are we really living in a #post-truth world? It has been an extraordinary year for the concept of veracity. Brexit. Trump. Experts have taken a beating, facts have apparently taken second place to emotion and feeling. And what about truth? It seems like fewer and fewer people, whether voters or politicians, care what’s true anymore. Step forward the Oxford English Dictionary’s word of 2016: “post-truth”. Is this just shorthand to help liberals make sense of a world they don’t like? Or does it mark something more meaningful?

Really interesting programme on the notion of ‘post truth’. Why does this matter to L&D? Because getting to good, useful and accurate information from trusted sources is getting harder.
