Presentation Matters

George Seldes, the legendary investigative journalist and publisher of In Fact, is often remembered for his admonition to, "Tell the truth and run." Probably good advice for someone as courageous in exposing official corruption as he was, but hardly adequate for derailing the present corporate fascism he forecast fifty years ago.

For those now engaged with the battle in the ideoscape of modern conflict, a new book from an unexpected source might be helpful. In Trial Ad Notes--a weblog published by reference librarian Mary Whisner at Gallagher Law Library, University of Washington--Facts Can't Speak for Themselves by Eric Oliver is currently touted as a resource in creating persuasive narrative.

"A fascinating book on how to present information."
