All Governments Lie

At its best, journalism should have an inquisitive relationship with power, constantly questioning or combatting it in a relentless pursuit of the truth. Unfortunately, giant media conglomerates often have a vested interest in making money rather than uncovering lies. Matt Taibbi (Rolling Stone) states, “What makes money in this country is avoiding difficult truths”. The legacy of IF Stone and his ground breaking reporting has inspired journalists such as Amy Goodman and Michael Moore to find the truth. “When the media acts as a conveyor belt for the lies, why it matters is because lies take lives” - Amy Goodman (Democracy Now). This film is truly an inspiration.
