Our Special Issue 14.2 “Communication and dissent: Competing voices in a post-truth world“ is now out. This brand new issue gathers together outstanding contributions to the field of public opinion, journalism, and political communication. The relation between communication and dissent, between information and polarization, between alternative discourses and
manipulated claim is that which nineteen authors in this monograph deal with, and is made up of six scientific articles and two viewpoints.
I would like to thank Dr. Adolfo Carratalá, Dr. Maria Iranzo and Dr. Guillermo López from Universitat de València for their hard work on this issue, which explores the use of communication as an instrument with which to build versions of reality which have little to do with factual truths or as a tool with which monitor democratic systems.
