Our media sucks. But you already knew that. In True Lies, the Guerrilla News Network's Stephen Marshall and Anthony Lappé don't offer up another cranky complaint about media and politics. They hit the road, investigating some of the biggest stories the corporate media is ignoring. True Lies traces these digital Don Quixotes' travels around the globe, from the frontlines in Iraq to small town America. Along the way, you'll meet heroes and geniuses, the paranoid and the plain perplexed about what's happening in the real America behind the headlines. From the poisoning of our own soldiers, to the turning over of the most fundamental act of democracy to corrupt corporations, to the unanswered questions of 9/11, the authors from the popular web site GNN.tv examine what has become a cultural phenomenon of mass denial. As an Oxford historian explains to them, "Life is lubricated by lies." This may be the tagline for our times.
