Film screening of “Tell the Truth and Run: George Seldes and the American Press”

A piercing look at censorship and suppression in this Media Academy Award nominee!

Directed by Rick Goldsmith, and narrated by Susan Sarandon and Ed Asner

During an 80-year career, newsman George Seldes spoke truth to power- whether dictators, generals, industrialists or newspaper publishers. Through Seldes’ ncounters with Lenin, Mussolini and J. Edgar Hoover, the tobacco industry and the “Lords of the Press”, Tell the Truth and Run provides a gripping journey through the 20th century and a piercing look at censorship and suppression in US news media. With Ralph Nader, Victor Navasky, Ben Bagdikian, Daniel Ellsberg, Nat Hentoff, Marian Seldes, and Jeff Cohen of FAIR.

“A magnetic, entrancing, inspiring film…reveals a history of our times unknown to most Americans. Delightful to watch and a powerful educational experience. I wish every young person in America could see it.” Howard Zinn, author of “A People’s History of the United States”
