Van Jones of CNN has book coming out in fall

NEW YORK (AP) " Van Jones, the political activist and CNN commentator who coined the term "whitelash" for Donald Trump's election victory, has a book deal.

Jones' "Facing the Messy Truth" will be published this fall, Ballantine Books announced Thursday. The book will be a "manifesto" for taking action in a time of "collective political anxiety," according to Ballantine, a Penguin Random House imprint. Jones said in a statement that he saw "Facing the Messy Truth" as a way out of partisan gridlock.

Jones' previous books include "Rebuild the Dream" and "The Green Collar Economy."
