  • Don't Believe It! How Lies Become News cover


Ever wish you had a lie detector for your television or newspaper? Chances are, you're being fooled by mass media more often than you think.

In Don't Believe It!, accomplished journalist and academic Alexandra Kitty takes you on a guided tour of one hundred years of media hoaxes, propaganda and misinformation and shows you how to take apart a news story from the inside out to find the falsehoods lurking within. She then unveils:
  • The inside workings of the media that make news sources vulnerable to foul play
  • How to see through falsely reported rumors, urban legends, hoaxes, mistakes and propaganda
  • How to get all sides of a story and be a savvy news consumer

  • In an information-based society, all it takes to change the course of the world are the right words and context. Truth and objectivity finish last. Needles in Pepsi cans, a global cult claiming to have cloned human beings, the wholly fabricated Iraqi 'atrocities' that initiated Operation Desert Storm - from urban legends that are reported as fact to the little white lies that spark wars, Alexandra Kitty reveals how often our reality has been shaped by media deception and how to see through to the truth on the other side of the flickering screen.
