At a time when truth is under siege, acclaimed investigative reporter Charles Lewis has given us a gripping insider's guide to a new journalistic ecosystem which is exposing lies, greed, and abuses of power across the globe. For citizens everywhere who care about truth-telling and holding those in power accountable.”
Katrina vanden Heuvel, Editor and publisher of The Nation
Though people in Washington lie all the time, the word lie' is very rarely used. In 935 Lies, veteran investigative journalist Chuck Lewis reminds us, in vivid detail, of the many times government leaders and corporations have lied to us and sought to muscle the news business to keep it from exposing the truth. Don't read it and weep ... read it and get angry!”
Ray Suarez, Host, Inside Story, Al Jazeera America
935 LIES provides a powerful survey of the quest for truth amid an explosion of mis-information and misinterpretations in everything from news reporting by traditional TV media to paid lobbyists, advocates, the Internet, and more. The truth becomes even more confusing and impossible under such an onslaught, and 935 Lies explores the many ways truth is manipulated by business and political interests alike. Any college-level reader concerned with the evolving world of disinformation will find this a powerful revealing study.” Midwest Book Review
An examination of the consequences of decades of government and corporate deception from a renowned investigative journalist, Washington insider, and founder of the centre for Public Integrity. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

In 2004 public opinion polls disclosed that more than half of all Americans believed that weapons of mass destruction had been used in Iraq. Numerous widely publicized international reports had shown, beyond doubt, that no such weapons existed. "What had the U.S. Government officials said to cause most Americans and their elected representatives to completely ignore facts, logic and reason in the rush to war? The author of this book, Charles Lewis, founder of the Center for Public Integrity, began to investigate these questions and ultimately issued a report that "Two years after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, President George W. Bush and seven of his administration's top officials made at least 935 false statements about the national security threat posed by Iraq. The carefully orchestrated campaign of untruths about Iraq's alleged threat to U.S. national security from its WMDs or links to al Qeada (also specious) galvanized public opinion and led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses."
With a few notable exceptions the Main Stream Media (MSM) "overwhelmingly failed to investigate or challenge the Administration's failed case for war, although some major news organizations later grudgingly acknowledged that their coverage was insufficiently critical of government pronouncements."
Mr.Lewis tells us that "investigating this tale of dishonesty by those in power and acquiescence on the part of those charged with reporting the truth has been a disheartening experience . . . Even more sobering, however, is the fact that that the Iraq War deception, with its 935 shameful, public lies, is simply the latest and most egregious story of truth betrayed . . . in the past five decades."
This book is a modern history of government and corporate lying and what can be done about it. I highly recommend it.
The overall purpose of this book is unclear. Plus, it's scope is very specific to the author's era and direct experience. "935 Lies" is completely misleading. Further, the discussion of governmental dishonesty is anecdotal, not systematic or adherent to an underlying theme about government and society.
Naturally, this book is well written and fun to read. I have knowledge and insight that I didn't have before. And, knowing that there journalists like this author still "out there" is very heartening.
Lewis is a distinguished reformer leading over time several media education and althernative venues after working with Mike Wallace and 60 Minutes for several years. His perspective as set forth in this book is essential for folks wanting to see how we can find a democracy that is not frozen in grid lock and reflective of the majority of the population, not just the few in the class characterized as the one per cent.
