Battling the Big Lie Out in Paperback Now!
Battling the Big Lie: How Fox, Facebook, and the MAGA Media are Destroying America is out in paperback! For those Message Box readers who bought the hardcover edition last year, thank you so much for reading my work and for putting it on the New York Times Bestseller List. For those who are new to this publication or haven’t yet read the book, this is a great chance to do so.
Don’t take my word for it; here’s what my old boss Barack Obama had to say about Battling the Big Lie:
Here’s the truth: @danpfeiffer’s latest book, Battling the Big Lie, is an important read for anyone who’s wondering how the far right traffics in lies and what we can all do to fight back. As we head into election season, it could not be more timely.
In particular, the book examines:
How Republicans, from Roger Ailes to Steve Bannon to Donald Trump, exploited the media’s biases and the Democratic Party’s blind spots to build the most powerful weapon in American politics.
How Facebook became a willing enabler of the MAGA movement.
The failures of the traditional political media to fight back.
Methods to counter Fox, Facebook, and the trolls spreading disinformation and hate on the Internet.
The paperback edition contains a new chapter discussing what happened in 2022 and looking ahead to the role Right Wing propaganda and disinformation could play in the 2024 presidential election.
Thank you for considering.
