Economist, journalist and presenter Evan Davis is known for presenting BBC2’s Newsnight, as well as Dragons’ Den and business conversation programme The Bottom Line. In his book Post Truth, Evan charts a route through the muddy waters of the post-truth age. Every day we encounter exaggeration, euphemism, words designed to mislead without actually lying and, sometimes, pure nonsense.
In Post Truth: Why we have reached Peak Bullshit and what we can do about it, Evan sets out to explain how this has happened and why it became more of a concern in 2016.
Before taking up his role at Newsnight in September 2014, Evan Davis was a presenter of the Today programme on BBC Radio 4 and before that was the Economics Editor of the BBC, the most senior economics reporter in the corporation.
