Editorial Reviews

Review

“Charles Lewis probably did more than anyone else to launch institutional nonprofit journalism in America. So it is worth paying attention to what he has to say… His reflections, especially on network television, point up the inherent limits of our largest legacy news organizations and embody the hope that new entrants will fill the gaps in newsgathering and, thereby, enlarge the public's capacity for democratic governance.”—the Wall Street Journal

935 LIES provides a powerful survey of the quest for truth amid an explosion of mis-information and misinterpretations in everything from news reporting by traditional TV media to paid lobbyists, advocates, the Internet, and more. The truth becomes even more confusing and impossible under such an onslaught, and 935 Lies explores the many ways truth is manipulated by business and political interests alike. Any college-level reader concerned with the evolving world of disinformation will find this a powerful revealing study.” —Midwest Book Review

“At a time when truth is under siege, acclaimed investigative reporter Charles Lewis has given us a gripping insider’s guide to a new journalistic ecosystem which is exposing lies, greed, and abuses of power across the globe. For citizens everywhere who care about truth-telling and holding those in power accountable.”
Katrina vanden Heuvel, Editor and publisher of The Nation

“Though people in Washington lie all the time, the word ‘lie’ is very rarely used. In 935 Lies, veteran investigative journalist Chuck Lewis reminds us, in vivid detail, of the many times government leaders and corporations have lied to us and sought to muscle the news business to keep it from exposing the truth. Don’t read it and weep ... read it and get angry!”
Ray Suarez, Host, Inside Story, Al Jazeera America

“In an engaging and challenging amalgam of memoir and expose, Charles Lewis, a career-long muckraking crusader for truth, takes no prisoners in a deeply researched exploration of outrageous lying to the public and too-often ineffectual commercial news media by the American government, politicians, and corporations. An energetic journalistic reformer, Lewis nevertheless sees hope for the future of truth in the digital revolution and the rise of public-spirited nonprofit news media, in which he has been a key player.”
Leonard Downie, Jr., Vice President-at-Large, the Washington Post

“Insightful. Original. Provocative. Charles Lewis at his best!”
Dr. Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center

“If you like straight talk, unvarnished history, and are not interested in being politically correct, this is the book for you.”
Seymour M. Hersh

“An amazingly sharp take on why trust in America’s leaders, institutions, and media is at an all-time low. Charles Lewis goes through far more than 935 lies from politicians, government, and corporations. He cuts to the lies we Americans tell ourselves.”
Juan Williams, author of Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate, Fox News political analyst, and columnist for The Hill
