Independent journalists Amy Goodman, Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill, Matt Taibbi, and others are changing the face of journalism, providing investigative, alternatives to mainstream, corporate news outlets. Greenwald was the lead reporter on the revelations of NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Scahill wrote Dirty Wars – the book and Oscar-nominated film on secret U.S. government assassinations. Our cameras follow as they expose government and corporate deception – just as the ground-breaking journalist I.F. Stone did decades ago.
With government deception rampant, and intrusion of state surveillance into private life never more egregious, many journalists are finding that to aggressively investigate governments rather than act as “stenographers to power,” they need to abandon mainstream corporate news media to work at web-based alternative news sites.
A timely documentary for audiences who are more than ever seeking alternatives to news media owned by huge corporations. All Governments Lie will forever change the way you watch and read the news.
