dc.description.abstractWhat I am arguing is that people’s inability to distinguish between the truth and a lie, is influenced by a number of factors such as lack of education, political fatigue, and the fact that likeable people are able to distort the truth. A major factor is news coverage itself. The constant repetition of lies transforms them into truths. Finally, a large group of people who no longer trust media reports has its roots in two developments. On one hand, the media appears to be one sided and partisan and on the other hand, facts do not seem to matter anymore. These are not new developments and the roots of this occurrence today can be traced back to the administration of president George W. Bush and are still prevalent with the Trump administration today.en_US
