NEW YORK – All Points Books has acquired World English rights to James O’Keefe’s American Pravda: My Fight for Truth in the Era of Fake News, which tells the story of the muckraking journalist’s undercover reporting activities during and since the 2016 presidential campaign, including exposés into mainstream media giants such as CNN. The book will be published on January 16, 2018. Alexander Hoyt represented O’Keefe in the deal with All Points editorial director Adam Bellow.
Mr. O’Keefe is the founder and President of Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action, non-profit organizations dedicated to exposing corruption and fraud in both public and private institutions. His approach to investigative journalism has been both praised and criticized, and Project Veritas Action stories have led directly to federal and state investigations, congressional inquiries, and resignations and firings.
In American Pravda, the reader is invited to go undercover with the intrepid journalists of Project Veritas as they infiltrate political campaigns, unmask dishonest officials and expose voter fraud. A rollicking adventure story on one level, the book 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. It not only contests the false narratives surrounding O’Keefe’s activities frequently put forth by corporate media, it documents the consequences of telling the truth in a world where media elites control the national narrative.
O’Keefe said, “The difference between the Soviet Pravda and the American Pravda is that the Russian people participated in the lie, that is to say- they knew they were being lied to. This book explains my fight to get the American people to see the world for what it actually is, as opposed to what the mainstream media would have them believe.”
