Background Briefing with Ian Masters: Building a reality-based community in post-truth America

We speak with Mark Danner, a longtime staff writer for The New Yorker who is a regular contributor to The New York Review of Books and teaches at the University of California, Berkeley and Bard College. He joins us to discuss his latest article at the NYRB, "The Con He Rode in On: Why do people hardly even talk about all the car plants Trump has brought to Michigan?" At the rapturous rallies Mark Danner attended, Trump’s fans believed and applauded him when he lied to them declaring, “We brought you a lot of car plants, Michigan!. We brought you a LOT of car plants. You know that, right?” Given that example, we can only hold our breath as millions of his armed followers stew in righteous anger believing that the election was stolen from him.
