During an 80-year career, newsman George Seldes spoke truth to power–whether dictators, generals, industrialists or newspaper publishers.

Through Seldes’ encounters 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 twentieth century and a piercing look at censorship and suppression in America’s news media.
