Abstract

In our article we seek to reflect on the implications of the word "post-truth"as a way of characterizing our societies suffering from a media, cultural, social and political malaise. We believe that the important research that has already been produced on this issue linking it to the media culture should extend its scope beyond the media in order to understand the unprecedented advance of populism and its formulas that support ultra-right movements which have resurface our democratic horizons. To this end, we consider five elements - what we call truth bubbles - to signal a number of perspectives which we consider critical to understand what is at stake.
