Summary
The one real difference between the American press and the Soviet state newspaper Pravda was that the Russian people knew they were being lied to. To expose the lies our media tell us today, controversial journalist James O’Keefe created Project Veritas, an independent news organization whose reporters go where traditional journalists dare not. Their investigative work–equal parts James Bond, Mike Wallace, and Saul Alinsky—has had a consistent and powerful impact on its targets.

In American Pravda, the listener is invited to go undercover with these intrepid journalists as they infiltrate political campaigns, unmask dishonest officials and expose voter fraud. A rollicking adventure story on one level, this audiobook also serves as a treatise on modern media, arguing that establishment journalists have a vested interest in keeping the powerful comfortable and the people misinformed.

Ths audiobook not only contests the false narratives frequently put forth by corporate media, it documents the consequences of telling the truth in a world that does not necessarily want to hear it. O’Keefe’s enemies attack with lawsuits, smear campaigns, political prosecutions, and false charges in an effort to shut down Project Veritas. For O’Keefe, every one of these attacks is a sign of success.

American Pravda puts the myths and misconceptions surrounding O’Keefe’s activities to rest and will make you rethink every word you hear and read in the so-called mainstream press.

I’ve read the book but haven’t listened to it here but I will soon. That being said, I can appreciate the fact Mr. O’Keefe has thrown us back to a time where he and his team report the news and allows us to come to our own conclusions. Maybe some see it differently but I for one, appreciate the format that I grew accustomed to growing up rather than what we see on so many of today’s “News” programs where they give us their opinion and proclaim it to be fact that we should just accept as such. Just my 2¢, for what it’s worth.

Pleased that James was the narrator. It was a high energy read. David and Goliath of this moment in history. Terrific book!

James takes us through his harrowing tale of trying to expose the truth. Unlike the Russia publication Pravda, American Pravda gives us truth not just a party line. Amazing book!!!!

Heaps and heaps of candid bone breaking indictments cutting both sides of the isle. This book is extremely beneficial to the reader. While PV is the source; I sincerely believe there is some divine intervention here - that makes this book a must read for every freshman in college and every blue collar tradesmen just starting out. — 100% must listen to this book.
