Publisher's Summary

In today's post-truth political landscape, there is a carefully concealed but ever-growing industry of organized misinformation that exists to create and disseminate lies in the service of political agendas. Ari Rabin-Havt and Media Matters for America present a revelatory history of this industry - which they've dubbed Lies, Incorporated - and show how it has crippled legislative progress on issues including tobacco regulation, public health care, climate change, gun control, immigration, abortion, and same-sex marriage.
Eye opening and indispensable, Lies, Incorporated takes an unflinching look at the powerful network of politicians and special interest groups that have launched coordinated assaults on the truth to shape American politics.

Fundamental to understanding politics today.

This book exposes clearly many fundamental lies in popular political controversy, and why we are so polarized. And it lays out the by whom and for what agenda.

definitely good and important info

i personally would have liked more fleshing out but ultimately the info and the overall point of the work was imperative to our current society. we are literally paralyzed in the country and in an effort to cope we willingly inguage in group delusion that we are somehow THE shinning example of a democratic western nation. If we don't have authors that are willing to talk sense when it's not easy is priceless to our nation.
