All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone
Riffing off the great independent newsman I.F. Stone's famous statement "All governments lie," Peabody connects with an array of impressive indie journalists who are filling in the gaps left by a pandering mainstream media.
Let's face it: Reality is getting too strange for filmmakers to keep up. That said, All Governments Lie does offer an important cautionary point in the midst of Trump's increasingly authoritarian presidency.
It lucidly argues that powerful interests have been creating supercharged fake stories for decades to advance their own nefarious interests. And the institutional media have too often blithely played along.
In an era of disaster- and celebrity-obsessed cable news, during an election testing the virtues of objectivity, the documentary All Governments Lie is worthy testimony that many journalists are in it for the truth.
