To an unprecedented extent, the 2016 election raised questions about the role and function of the media, its responsibilities in a modern democracy, and the degree to which reportage can make a difference in public life. The national discussion of both candidates was driven by an a la carte relationship with reality that culminated in new levels of mendacity, "alternative facts," and, ultimately, toxic confusion. This lecture examines the dynamics at play in the election, the role played by print, broadcast, and social media, and the implications of those dynamics for the “fourth estate” over the next four years of American politics, and into the future.
