Lies of Our Times
Lies of Our Times
was, until it ceased publication,
a monthly magazine of media criticism. "Our Times" are the times we live in; but they are also the words of The New York Times, the most cited news medium in the United States, our paper of record. The "Lies" are more than literal falsehoods; they encompass subjects that have been ignored, hypocrisies, misleading emphases, and hidden premises -- the biases which systematically shape reporting.
The coverage in "Lies of Our Times" was based on the research of more than one hundred correspondents -- not only media critics, but also academics, journalists, literary figures, and activists. The magazine also solicited the help of a variety of public interest and human rights groups, to advise it of their dealings with the media. It paid close attention to press releases, stories, proposed columns, and letters that fail to make it into the mass media.
