    175. LIES AGREED UPON: GEORGE SELDES AND THE AMERICAN PRESS (1983) - Part 1 of 3



    Although George Seldes is one of the giants in the history of American journalism, particularly in the field of press criticism, he has been neglected and blacklisted by the mainstream press. In this three-part series we present the American TV debut of Seldes, who was a foreign correspondent from
    1917-1939 and who published the alternative newspaper "In
    Fact" in the 1940s and l950s. Seldes wrote over 20 books and was the model and inspiration for present day activists and muckrakers like Ralph Nader, I.F. Stone and Jack Anderson. In Part I, Seldes recalls the World War I "battle" of Saint-Mihiel, which was no battle at all; his interview with Lenin; and his
    many talks with Mussolini, who later tried to have him killed. He analyzes press coverage of the events, showing us the lies, distortions and machinations which occurred and the people and institutions involved in them.
