This book is an absolute MUST for everyone.
michael myers
Some of the conspiracy authors are probably very sincere and honestly believe in their theory, and maybe they are right or just plain nuts.
W. ANDERSON
It does a really good job at exposing the reader to a number of different subjects.

Format: Paperback
This is a remixed version of a previously published book, containing articles on a wide variety of topics that will not be covered in the mainstream media. There is something here to upset or offend nearly everyone.

Howard Zinn talks about the real Christopher Columbus. Alex Jones talks about the coming North American Union. There is a piece on John McCain and his attempts to cover up the POW issue from the Vietnam War. R. Crumb contributes a graphic novel piece on the religious experience of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. Jim Marrs explores the reasons behind the attempts by the Iraqi Government to ban Blackwater. There is a piece on getting high by licking toads, along with a piece on the unconscious roots of the Drug War. Other contributions in this book reassess the "official" version of the Oklahoma City bombing, along with the cover-up of the murder of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

The titles of some of these articles are pretty self-explanatory. For instance, there is AA Lies (all about Alcoholics Anonymous); Amnesia in America; The Information Arms Race; The Truth About Corporations; Cheap, Crappy Food = A Fat Population; Chemicals Are Killing You; Drug War Mythology; We Were Silenced by the Drums of War; NutraFear and NutraLoathing in Augusta, Georgia; Pharmaceutical Crimes and Misdemeanors; The Martin Luther King You Don't See on TV and Fear and Lying in 2012-Land.

Like I said, there is something here for everyone. It does a really good job at exposing the reader to a number of different subjects. For anyone who wants to get past the mass media version of how the world works, and get the "real" story, start right here. It is highly recommended.

IMO, you have to cull all of these types of books for what is true and what is over the top conspiracy theory nut material. However, in this book they have brought together a number of respected writers who present their theories in a coherent and cohesive manner. For that reason, I place it head and shoulders above most books in this category.

Format: Paperback
We live in an age of perpetual 'spin'. Information given bias by the agendas of those who produce and/or communicate it. In "You Are Still Being Lied To: The Remixed Disinformation Guide to Media Distortion, Historical Whitewashes and Cultural Myths", editor Russ Kick has compiled reports, contributions, and commentaries by investigative reporters, political dissidents, academics, media watchdogs, scientist-philosophers, social critics, and independent scholars to reveal the true and underlying stories that have been commonly suppressed, distorted, and ignored by the mainstream media, the political establishment, and the culturally conservative. Enhanced with informed and informative essays by Noam Chomsky, Ron Paul, Sydney Schanberg; Gary Webb, R. Crumb; Howard Zinn; Graham Hancock; Michael Parenti; Rian Eisler, Jim Marrs, Howard Bloom, and others, "You Are Still Being Lied To" is a remarkable and seminal compendium that should be a part of every academic and community library Social Issues, American History, and Political Science reference collection and personal reading list.

This alternative essay compilation by Russ Kick--better known for his editing of the graphic canon series--is pretty interesting and eye-opening. Be forewarned though, some of the stuff ranges from the believable to the tin-foil hat crowd. Just be discerning on what essays are on this side of plausible and other essays that are just crackers. No matter which you happen to be reading they are all thoroughly great reads.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is a collection of about 50 chapters, each written by a different author, the thing that they have in common, is they nearly all seem to be conspiracy buffs. Some of the chapters are quite believable, containing things that I agree with, but after seeing them in the book, I will have to go back and fact check them. A number of the chapters put forward some of the common conspiracy theories that are found in great plenitude on the internet today. The evidence presented is compelling, and the argument is often very logical, but a few minutes searching on the web checking reliable websites, not the conspiracy ones, reveals that the authors have omitted key facts, altered details and reported made up stories as fact. In short, every conspiracy theory that I fact checked, came apart so fast doing an internet search, that I should have been using a stop watch and holding a "conspiracy rodeo" to see which one would hold up the longest. Even with a slow dial-up connection, most of the conspiracy theories hit the dust in minutes. I was totally shocked at how poor the research was, didn't any of these guys know how to use the internet?, and that was when the revelation hit me, most of the articles were written before the internet became the information source it is today.

Nearly every chapter is written by someone selling his theory which often includes you buying his newest book. What I learned from this book, is each conspiracy author is like a con man selling you something, and he will often lie to make the sale. All of those conspiracy theories running around out there are someone's business idea, their little intellectual money making machines.
