And are we really in the post-truth age?John Lloyd answers these questions and more in this panoramic survey of the global news media.
Journeying from Putin's Russia to Trump's America, from Saudi Arabia to Israel, from Mexico to China, Lloyd shows how the power of investigative journalism matters now more than ever.
