By wochit 26 January 2017

Sales of George Orwell's "1984" are soaring.First published in 1949, Orwell's classic is a dystopian tale which describes a society in which facts are distorted and suppressed in a cloud of "newspeak." It topped the best-seller list of Amazon as of Tuesday evening.The sales bump comes after the Trump administration's assertions that the president's inauguration had record attendance. Also called into question even by prominent members of his own party, is the president's unfounded allegations that millions of illegal votes were cast against him last fall.When she called his claims about crowd size "alternative facts," Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway coined an instant catchphrase Sunday. The phrase brought immediate comparisons on social media to "1984."
