Co-presented by L.I. Media Task Force. “All governments lie,” cried iconoclastic rebel journalist I.F. Stone who from 1953 to 1971, filled a tiny 4-page newsletter with his fearless, independent reporting. Inspired by Stone, a team of award-winning journalists such as Jeremy Scahill, Glenn Greenwald, Michael Moore, and Amy Goodman continue to expose government lies and corporate deception. With government malfeasance rampant, and intrusion of state surveillance into private life never more egregious, independent voices are increasingly crucial. (Canada, 2016, 91 min., English, NR, DCP | Dir. Fred Peabody) Guest Speaker: Co-producer Jeff Cohen, media expert and founder of Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (F.A.I.R.), FreePress.net, and Roots Action. ($11 members, $16 public)
