Publisher's Summary

It ain't so much the things we don’t know that get us into trouble, 19th-century humorist Josh Billings remarked. "It's the things we know that just ain’t so."

In this bold and brilliantly argued book, acclaimed author and talk-radio host Michael Medved zeroes in on 10 of the biggest fallacies that millions of Americans believe about our country - in spite of incontrovertible facts to the contrary. In The 10 Big Lies About America, Medved pinpoints the most pernicious pieces of America-bashing disinformation that pollute current debates about the economy, race, religion in politics, the Iraq war, and other contentious issues.

Each of the 10 lies—widely believed among elites and taught as truth in universities and public schools—is a grotesque, propagandistic distortion of the historical record. For everyone who is tired of hearing America denigrated by people who don’t know what they’re talking about, The 10 Big Lies About America supplies the ammunition necessary to fire back the next time somebody tries to recycle these baseless beliefs. Medved’s witty, well-documented rebuttal is a refreshing reminder that as Americans we should feel blessed, not burdened, by our heritage.

    "America the Beautiful"

    Thank you, Michael Medved, for a wonderful book. The only thing lacking? I wish it were updated to 2015 and offered a section on the damage that POTUS Barack Obama has done to this country.

    "Not Bad, But Not Earth-Shattering"

    Michael Medved kept me interested, but I was hoping for a more eye-opening experience. It's a little on the preachy side. I thought the chapter on the middle class (#9) and the data he used to support it was the most interesting piece of the book. Worth a read if you are looking for some accurate insight into American history.
