Even the Gods Can't C. .Stone, there was journalist George Seldes, an independent and liberal voice who wrote over two world wars, defending the victims of Franco in Spain and of McCarthy in America.
Even the Gods Can't C. He is probably best known as a media critic, at a time - and we may be returning to it - in which the news in newspapers often reflected the political biases of their publishers. All that said, this book is very dated.

If I could mandate required reading for all American children ALL George Seldes books would be on the list; this one in particular. I would like to send a copy of this book to all Home Schooled children and tell their parents that unless the child read and studied these books they would not be passed to the next grade, or graduate. George Seldes is the only truly Honest writer of the 20th century. As an American I can state honestly, he is the only American Author that makes me proud to be an American.

Even the Gods Can't Change History: The Facts Speak for Themselves. I've spent over three decades reading many history books and believe I have an above-average grasp of our past, but Mr. Seldes made me feel like an ignoramus
Even the Gods Can't Change History: The Facts Speak for Themselves. Seldes made me feel like an ignoramus. About half the people he mentioned I knew; the other half didn't even remotely sound familiar. The author assumes the reader will know these people, so he avoids giving very much background information about them. If you do not have a decent knowledge of the Twentieth Century, it's likely you'll be googling so many names that you'll type your fingertips into bloody nubs.

George Seldes is the man behind this book . He is one of the greatest journalists, ever. Truthteller, rest in peace. This long out-of-print history book will tell you most of what you ought to know about the rise of the transnational corporate plutocracy in the first half of the 20th century; about their failed coup against FDR, about their control of the press, their mass sabotage of the labor movement, about the endless front organizations they're behind on both.
He was an investigative reporter of the kind known in early 20th century as a muckraker, using his journalism to fight injustice and justify reform. But by his time the public mood had changed, and reader demand for muckraking was much weaker.
