Disinformation News Special Bulletin:
Disinformation Editor Russ Kick has been named one of Utne Reader's "50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World":
Russ Kick – Architect of Memory:
"I don't foresee a day when there is true government transparency," says Russ Kick, editor of TheMemoryHole.org. "It's just not in the nature of government." So, in lieu of the end of secrecy, Kick tenaciously ticks off small victories, such as finding an IRS guide to prosecuting money laundering, buried in the Federal Depository Library, and using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to unearth photographs of U.S. military prisons.
Since 2002, Kick has preserved hundreds of cultural artifacts, including that five-minute clip of President Bush reading to schoolchildren on 9/11 after an aide whispered to him that the nation was under siege. Kick edits a series of anthologies for Disinformation, a radical media organization. [This year] look for an updated edition of 2001's You Are Being Lied To, called (appropriately) You Are STILL Being Lied To.
The best you hope for, Kick says, is that an inspired citizen files an FOIA request of his or her own.
AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEW: RUSS KICK
Russ Kick is the author of 50 Things You're Not Supposed To Know, Volumes 1 and 2, and The Disinformation Book of Lists. He is the editor of Everything You Know Is Wrong, Abuse Your Illusions, Everything You Know About Sex Is Wrong, and Everything You Know About God Is Wrong. His next anthology You Are STILL Being Lied To will be available in December 2008.
Russ Kick assembles an unprecedented group of researchers — investigative reporters, political dissidents, academics, media watchdogs, scientist-philosophers, social critics, and rogue scholars — to paint a picture of a world where crucial stories are ignored or actively suppressed and the official version of events has more holes in it than Swiss cheese.
Featuring essays from Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Howard Bloom, Sydney Schanberg, Michael Parenti, Riane Eisler, Jim Marrs, and many others!
