Your Call: Brooke Gladstone on facts, reality and the media in the Trump era

On this week’s media roundtable, we’ll have a conversation with Brooke Gladstone, co-host of WNYC's On the Media, about her new book The Trouble with Reality: A Rumination on Moral Panic in Our Time.

Gladstone argues that reality has become so muddled, and facts so debated, that “democracy cannot happen.” How did we get here? And how are the media separating facts from lies in today’s fragmented media ecosystem?
