Overview

As mainstream news sources increasingly turn to the lowest common denominator ofshock jocks and flag-waving, millions of Americans are getting their information about important global issues from alternative, nontraditional sources. GNN is one of the best.

In True Lies, the writers at GNN uncover the stories that the mainstream media has held back from the American public. From the war on drugs to environmental abuse to what is really happening in the streets of Baghdad, GNN is the resource more Americans turn to when hungry for answers about what is really happening in the world.

Author Biography: Anthony Lappé is a writer and television producer who has written for more than twenty magazines and newspapers including The New York Times, Details, Black Book, and Salon.com, among others.

Stephen Marshall, a founding member of GNN, is a writer, video director, and creator of Channel Zero, the first global VHS news magazine.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Making an extensive contribution to ongoing critiques of the media, Web-based Guerrilla News Network reporters Lapp and Marshall charge that the public is served by members of "a lazy and compliant news media" who often act as mere "glorified stenographers" to the government and corporate sources they rely on for information and answers. To back up their claims, the authors collect un- and under-reported news stories from the past few years, giving careful scrutiny to alternative versions of election fraud, conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11, the notion of American empire, Gulf War illness and military vaccinations, "crossover" voting (voting in two primary elections) and electronic voting machines. Perhaps the most compelling chapter deals with the U.S. military use of depleted uranium in armor-tipped weapons. Introduced in the first Gulf War and used again in the Balkans, the recent invasion of Iraq saw a renewed proliferation of these "radioactive kinetic penetrators." This time they were used in heavily populated areas now occupied by American forces as well as Iraqi civilians. Why, the authors ask, "has the mainstream American media paid so little attention to this literally radioactive issue?" Lapp and Marshall also critique the left-leaning organizations and activists for distortions in their dispatches. Their own presentation, which allows most of the stories to speak for themselves without heightened language, does manage to lead by example. Agent, Ian Kleinert of Literary Group International.

    Edgy, comprehensive survey of under-reported current events

    A comprehensive review of the most intense under-reported investigations of recent years, True Lies mercilessly describes exactly how the mainstream media have deliberately sidestepped and even downplayed these unwelcome news items. These stories include the questionable promotion of unauditable voting machines (as a remedy for election miscounts?), the debilitating effects of exposure to dust contaminated from the detonation of DU-tipped weapons used heavily in Baghdad, and the FDA's blind and submissive role in 'regulating' the DoD's compulsory experimental use of substandard vaccines on servicemen and women in the armed forces. Crisp, poetic sentences and transparent, original investigative reporting are trademarks of GNN, the brash, aesthetically aggressive production company the authors co-founded, that spearheads the mounting campaign to mobilize a new generation of analytical, evidence-driven citizen muckrakers. Inspiring by example with a harrowing account of their own field tests to measure radioactivity levels around battlefield sites and junkyards in Iraq, Stephen Marshall and Anthony Lappé challenge their fellow media guerrillas to create 'a highly branded, charismatic, and controversial' field of competition in the lagging, consolidation-driven information market. True Lies is evidence that their ambitions are firmly rooted in the world of today's possibilities. This is a comprehensive survey of the most urgently relevant (yet publicly marginalized) of current events, news stories that have been reported only in the alternative press. In unfolding these stories and celebrating the triumphs of investigators like Mark Benjamin and Bev Harris, who have raised their voices against the deafening silence of a broadcast news system that seems to function as the Washington establishment's push-button intercom device, they document an ascendant revolutionary underground news culture fit to seriously threaten the media giants' rigged lock on America's public knowledge base.
