Public Seminar | ‘Lying in State’ A Conversation With Author Eric Alterman
From Digital Content at TNS on March 10th, 2021
In this Public Seminar Book Club, we talk with CUNY Professor and Author Eric Alterman about his latest book 'Lying in State: Why Presidents Lie -And Why Trump is Worse' (Basic Books, 2020). In his book Eric Alterman asks how the US ended up with such a pathologically dishonest commander in chief, showing that, from early on, the United States has persistently expanded its power and hegemony on the basis of presidential lies. Hosted by Executive Editor of Public Seminar Claire Potter.
