Leer y releer a Francisco Umbral en la era de la posverdad

Abstract : This article provides a reflection on the relationship Umbral has with truth. Based on a series of newspaper articles we try to study here how the writer and journalist manages to render account of the objective truth of facts without passing them through the sieve of subjectivity today called post-truth: a concept which nowadays defines the conditions of the production of information. Comparing the contexts of different writings – Umbral's and today's – we examine the dangers of misinformation, the latter of which not only makes one question the ethics of journalism but also manipulates public opinion and so fosters collective exaltation/hysteria which puts in danger the stability/equilibrium of our societies.
