Lies the Media Tell Us


Manufacturer: Black Rose Books

Product Information


"Winner of the 2007 Book Award from the International Institute for Advanced Studies in Systems Research and Cybernetics


Understanding how media shape our thinking about social issues, and believing that our limited direct experiences leave us vulnerable to the duplicity and disinformation of the corporate media, James Winter records example after example--from corporate owners, managers, advertisers, and journalists themselves--of the use, misuse, and abuse of information.

Detailed case studies include: CanWest Global firing writers and even a publisher; the bias against workers and labour unions; environmentalists portrayed as cult members, or eco- zealots (partly because eight of the ten largest corporations in the world are involved in either gas and oil production and sales, or automobile production); Big Pharma and the role of MDs, medical professors, and the media as drug pushers; the news media's role as cheerleaders for Canada's war in Afghanistan and the U.S. war in Iraq; and how corporate globalization combines military and economic invasions, with a devastating account of what really happened in Haïti."
