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.
“Ari Rabin-Havt tells the truth, and that’s something rare in Washington, D.C.” —Sen. Harry Reid, U.S. Senate Democratic Leader
“After 30 years in politics, I thought I was beyond the ability to be shocked—until I read Lies, Incorporated. An important book for everyone who is angry—and an essential one for anyone who isn’t angry yet.” —Paul Begala, Democratic Strategist
“A damning jeremiad on how modern public policy can be exploited by corporate chicanery.” —Kirkus Reviews
