Everything You Know Is Wrong: The Disinformation Guide to Secrets and Lies
In this follow-up to the hugely successful You Are Being Lied To, an amazing group of investigative journalists, researchers, commentators, dissidents, and academics peels back consensus reality and shows us what’s really happening. You’ll find hard, documented evidence—including revelations never before published—on the most powerful institutions and controversial topics in the world. In this volume you’ll read what you’re not supposed to know about money and banking, true crime, governments, the medical establishment, unreported news, hidden history, and much more.
Engrossing and infuriating compilation of muckraking articles, expos, and provocative claims. Some of the pieces in the book are very timely: an assertion that the government had advance warning of the September 11 terrorist attacks, reports of additional gunmen at Columbine High School, and additional details on Senator Bob Kerrey’s actions in Vietnam. Most of the articles were written for this volume, though some appeared previously in reputable magazines and journals (e.g., the Village Voice, Toronto Globe & Mail, and Journal of Medical Ethics). Not all the pieces deal with political issues; readers will find a wide range of social (“Mad Cow Disease”), financial (“World Bank and the WTO”), and cultural topics. A few familiar names appear among the contributors (Howard Zinn, Paul Krassner), but most are investigative reporters not well known to the public. This contrarian collection will attract a diverse readership from conspiracy nuts to academics and is recommended for most public libraries.
