Canada Votes 2019: Screening and Panel: All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Legacy of I.F. Stone
Followed by post-screening panel with Jonathan Kay (Contributing Editor, Quillette) and Judy Rebick (Co-founder, Rabble.ca).
“The media is absolutely essential to the functioning of a democracy,” said Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman. But in today’s “post-truth” world of “alternate facts,” can we reliably trust the news reporting coming out of mainstream, corporate-owned media? In the leadup to our Federal elections, this question is more pressing than ever. From Goodman herself to Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibbi and Jeremy Scahill, follow the intrepid independent journalists who are providing necessary investigative alternatives and exposing government and corporate deception, following in the footsteps of ground-breaking American reporter I.F. Stone.
Following the film, join us for an incisive conversation about political and corporate influence in Canadian media and its potential impact on our upcoming elections.” Moderated by Akaash Maharaj (CEO, Mosaic Institue).
