Independent journalists Jeremy Scahill, Glenn Greenwald and filmmakers such as Michael Moore expose government lies and corporate deception, inspired by the legendary investigative journalist I.F. Stone.
”All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Legacy of I.F. Stone” is a theatrical documentary created by a team of Emmy Award-winning filmmakers, who subscribed to I. F. Stone’s newsletter in their teens. “I. F. Stone’s Weekly” inspired us then, and compels us now to tell the story of a new wave of independent, investigative, adversarial journalists following in Stone’s footsteps. We hope this film will inspire the next generation of independent journalists, many of whom are now in college, to carry on I.F. Stone’s legacy of speaking truth to power. This film will change the way you look at the mainstream media or “MSM”. Giant media conglomerates are increasingly reluctant to investigate or criticize government policies – particularly on defense, security and intelligence issues. Stone is little known today, but ”All Governments Lie” will reveal the profound influence he’s had on contemporary independent journalists like Greenwald, Scahill, Goodman and others.
