    From the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic comes an impassioned critique of America’s retreat from reason. How did truth become an endangered species in contemporary America? This decline began decades ago, and in The Death of Truth, former New York Times critic Michiko Kakutani takes a penetrating look at the cultural forces that contributed to this gathering storm. In social media and literature, television, academia, and politics, Kakutani identifies the trends that have combined to elevate subjectivity over factuality, science, and common values.

    "‘This Is How You Lose Her’: Acclimating to America and Women" is from the September 20, 2012 Entertainment section of The New York Times. It was written by Michiko Kakutani and narrated by Kristi Burns.

    How did truth become an endangered species? This decline began decades ago, and in The Death of Truth, former New York Times critic Michiko Kakutani takes a penetrating look at the cultural forces that contributed to this gathering storm. In social media and literature, television, academia, and political campaigns, Kakutani identifies the trends - originating on both the right and the left - that have combined to elevate subjectivity over factuality, science and common values. And she returns us to the words of the great critics of authoritarianism, writers like George Orwell and Hannah Arendt, whose work is newly and eerily relevant.
