One Nation, Two Realities

Dueling Facts in American Democracy

Morgan Marietta and David C. Barker

  • The most comprehensive treatment of this subject on the market -- tackling the causes and consequences of dueling fact perceptions, and potential correctives to them, all in one place
  • Uses a variety of methodological approaches to produce findings that are compelling and generalizable
  • Reaches a number of enlightening and provocative conclusions: dueling fact perceptions are not so much a product of hyper-partisanship or media propaganda as they are of simple value differences and deepening distrust of authorities
  • Deploys evidence to argue that fact-checking doesn't help to bring people with different beliefs together
