“A damning indictment of mainstream media.”

LA Times

“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.”

The Village Voice

Chilling…lucidly argues that powerful interests have been creating supercharged fake stories for decades.

Globe and Mail

“ ‘All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone’ is an urgent and fascinating documentary.” 

Variety


Documentary Feature | 90min | Completed
