Lies, Incorporated: The World of Post-Truth Politics



In case you haven't made it to a noon recording of In Deep with Angie Coiro, we're offering a special evening edition: Angie interviews Ari Rabin-Havt about his book Lies, Incorporated: The World of Post-Truth Politics. See what happens behind the scenes of a radio show, with questions and comments from the live audience.

Ari and Angie will examine our “post-truth political landscape”: distortions of truth transformed into common knowledge by a powerful network of special-interest groups and politicians.  

In his new book, Ari documents the carefully concealed, ever-growing industry of organized misinformation, paid to create and disseminate lies in the service of political agendas. His revelatory history of this public-deception industry uncovers the ideological groups shaping American politics with coordinated assaults on the truth. For more than sixty years, these organizations have successfully obscured facts, manufactured controversies, and ultimately crippled legislative progress on issues including tobacco regulation, public health care, climate change, gun control, immigration, abortion, and same-sex marriage. In an age when deep-pocketed individuals and corporations have the ear of major media outlets that can directly influence policy, Lies, Incorporated is essential reading.

ARI RABIN-HAVT hosts a daily national radio show, The Agenda. His writing has appeared in USA Today, The New Republic, Salon, and The American Prospect, and he has made appearances on MSNBC, CNBC, Al Jazeera, and HuffPost Live. He previously served as executive vice president of Media Matters for America and as an advisor to Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and former vice president Al Gore.
