Jeff Cohen – Oregon Spring 2018 Tour

RootsAction cofounder, JEFF COHEN (who also founded the progressive media watch group FAIR) is touring Oregon with the documentary movie, “ALL GOVERNMENTS LIE,” which he co-produced. See the schedule below. Tell friends. Bring friends.
ALL GOVERNMENTS LIE” has been seen in film festivals and on public TV channels across the globe, but apparently it’s too controversial for PBS.

ALL GOVERNMENTS LIE: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone (Trailer) from WhitePinePictures on Vimeo.

The documentary focuses on official liars – including U.S. presidents from Lyndon Johnson to Donald Trump – but the stars of the movie are independent journalists who’ve exposed government deceit. These include AMY GOODMAN & NERMEEN SHAIKH (Democracy Now!), GLENN GREENWALD & JEREMY SCAHILL (The Intercept), MICHAEL MOORE, THE YOUNG TURKS, and the legendary I.F. (“IZZY”) STONE, who challenged official propaganda, wars and racism for decades until his death in 1989.
