Publisher's Synopsis

Paul H. Weaver's News and the Culture of Lying uses hard evidence to expose the "culture of lying," a propensity of news organizations to obscure the true meanings of news events and distort the public's conception of reality.

News and Culture of Lying examines the relationship between journalists and the sources of their stories, argues that the media create an artificial sense of permanent emergency, and describes what must be done to restore credibility.
