HEMINGWAY, Ernest. Nobel Prize-winning author slams lying malreportage and propaganda ignoring the butchery of World War 1

Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American author, journalist and adventurer who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Hemingway ).

 

Ernest Hemingway on media and writers  lying about WW1:  “(World War I was) the most colossal, murderous, mismanaged butchery that has ever taken place on earth. Any writer who said otherwise lied, So the writers either wrote propaganda, shut up, or fought.”  [1].
