„1984“

Newspeak in real life: See the interview with the former counselor of President Trump, Kellyanne Conway, in which she coined the term ‚alternative facts‚ when confronted with an obvious falsehood stated by the then Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Many people were so shocked to witness this mind-boggling example of Orwellian newspeak in real life that the sale of Orwell’s dystopian novel surged after the interview.
