Does ‘fake news’ really exist? Find out from the ultimate insider. After years of working as a respected journalist, Nick Davies, in this shocking exposé, reveals what really goes on behind the scenes of this contentious industry.

Gripping, thought-provoking and revelatory, this is an insider’s look at one of the most tainted professions. ‘Meticulous, fair-minded and utterly gripping’ Telegraph ‘Powerful and timely...his analysis is fair, meticulously researched and fascinating’ Observer
