Fanatstic eye opener,
This review is from: You Are Being Lied To: The Disinformation Guide to Media Distortion, Historical Whitewashes and Cultural Myths (Paperback)
This book deserves a review, it deserves to be read by people who want out of the MTV listening, diet-coke drinking, G.W. Bush is my hero club. It has about 40-50 articles on a wide range of issues from politics (politricks) to health issues. Did you know that Nutrasweet contains a petrochemical and that a study highlighted such severe symptoms that the volunteers were prevented from continuing in the program. Now consider that Nutrasweet (aspartame) is in every diet soft drink and in every sugar-free (not sweetner free!) product.
There are also aricles on the Columbine(sp?) shootings, did you know that survivors described three or more shooters, not just two. That there were small bombs littered around the school so numerous that there is no way these two kids could have possibly snuck around hiding them without being caught.
There are also more sinister snipes at American culture and Martin Luther Kings silencing beyond his 'I have a dream' days. The last couple of his years of his life are never shown on TV documentaries etc.. because he became more outspoken on politics and American culturee in general (oooh, better not let him influence people on that...).
There you go then, a brief highlight of this book, to get the bigger picture buy it. It is very cheap for the book you get (400 pages at 9" by 12" , go actually measure that, youll be surprised!). I can only hope more of these come thick and fast so that a series can be built up to the point where the media will have to review each new book and be forced to tell us how they caved in on principles.
