ALL GOVERNMENTS LIE
Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I. F. Stone
Using various examples of historical mistruths, the 2016 film focuses on the difficulties, rewards, and importance of independent journalism. Footage assembled from the last six decades shines light on I. F. Stone, a groundbreaking investigative journalist whose legacy of speaking truth to power has had profound influence. Featured as they strive to expose deception are contemporary journalists Amy Goodman, Glen Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill, and Matt Taibbi. Additional observations are provided by a host of others including Carl Bernstein, Ralph Nader, David Corn, Noam Chomsky, and Michael Moore with further commentary offered in bonus footage.
