Chuck Lewis on Moyers: 935 Lies, A National Crisis Must Watch Video
Posted by Larry Doyle on July 2, 2014 7:39 AM |
How unsettling that as we approach the anniversary of our nation’s independence that we find ourselves a nation in crisis.
What is at the core of our crisis? Very simply, the truth, or dare I say the lack thereof. If the truth is fundamental to our national well being — and I for one think it is — then listen to what the highly acclaimed investigative journalist Chuck Lewis recently said to Bill Moyers:
“We really have a problem here. If we don’t know what the truth is in this country, then we don’t have a country. It’s end of story. It’s not our country anymore. This is fundamental.”
I fully concur.
I could not possibly more highly recommended a video than this. As a Washington insider and investigative journalistic giant, Lewis provides a chilling perspective and indictment of so much that transpires in our nation’s capital and those who inhibit the truth from making its way across our land.
Lewis takes us back to LBJ, provides a stinging rebuke of the Bush 43 administration, and castigates President Obama for waging a war on truth-seekers and truth-tellers. He provides little comfort for a complicit media as well.
Take the mere 25 minutes to watch this clip and gain a perspective that will last a lot longer than that.
I am currently reading Lewis’ book, 935 Lies. As one who very much appreciates learning the truth wherever I may find it and whatever I may learn, Lewis’ book is a great read.
