Alpha News reporter Liz Collin’s new book, “They’re Lying: The Media, The Left, and The Death of George Floyd,” details the cover-ups and hidden political agendas that Minnesotans have paid the price for since May 2020.
Collin explains in the book how the lies peddled by political leaders and the media led to riots across the country and record crime.
Collin would know. She was a familiar face on WCCO-TV and questioned the case from the very beginning. Her home was targeted by protesters multiple times.
In the book, former Minneapolis police officers Thomas Lane and Derek Chauvin exclusively share their side of the story along with several officers who say they were scapegoated by city and state leaders in the days that followed.
Collin examines a mountain of evidence kept from the public and details what was really happening, from the riots to the courtroom.
In one of dozens of exclusive interviews, Collin talked with now retired Minneapolis police officer Scott Creighton for the book.
Creighton first arrested George Floyd in an undercover drug sting the year before he died.
The prosecution had planned to call officer Creighton as a witness in the trial against Chauvin.
However, that changed after a strange meeting between Creighton and Attorney General Keith Ellison, who was leading the prosecution. Creighton described that meeting to Collin.
“They were trying to get me to lie about what I wrote. So, I got adamant … Ellison called over some other guy and the three of them talked in secret for a minute or two. Then the prosecutor came back over to me and said, ‘You’re done. We don’t need you, you’re dismissed’ or something like that. I was like, ‘What the heck is going on here?'” Creighton says in the book.
He was later called as a witness for Chauvin’s defense.
Collin takes readers behind the scenes for the very first time for a look at one of the biggest lies of our generation.
In a review of the book, Law Officer called it “the most shocking example of corruption we have ever seen. We warn you … be prepared for what you thought you knew to be completely destroyed.”
