Auteur: Kick, Russ (red.)
Titel: You are being lied to
Sub titel: The disinformation guide to media distortion, historical whitewashes and cultural myths
Author of 'Psychotropedia' and a columnist for the' Village Voice', Kick has collected here an impressive array of articles by such contributors as Sydney Schanberg of the 'New York Times', in which he asks why John McCain persistently blocks public disclosure of MIA files, and the lesser-known Jim Marrs, a Kennedy conspiracy zealot and freelance journalist who discusses missing data from historical tragedies, including the Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations and the Lockerbie bombing. Do gay teens really constitute a suicidal risk group? Was Jesus a myth? The best articles will surely compel readers to pursue further reading; none should be accepted as exhaustive. Public libraries ought to invest in a copy to keep alongside other sources of skepticism; academic libraries will find the scholarship uneven but provocative.
