Peter Pomerantsev has written a couple of books with very interesting titles. Their subjects are important, too. A few years ago, Pomerantsev published “Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible,” about the “surreal heart” of Putin’s Russia. Now he has published “This Is Not Propaganda,” about … well, propaganda, or fake news, or disinformation. It is a worldwide epidemic. Pomerantsev is a Soviet-born British journalist. His parents were well-known dissidents, booted out of the Soviet Union. With Jay, Pomerantsev discusses the “post-truth age,” as some call it. A disturbing subject, but one that must be understood.
