According to investigative journalist Danny Schechter, the U.S. conducted two wars in Iraq in 2003: one was a military assault, and the other was a media assault on the American public, or what he calls "jingoism posing as journalism." In this carefully-researched documentary, Schechter argues that the Pentagon employed classic propaganda techniques to control media coverage of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Schechter uses insider interviews and a wealth of news clips to explain how the Pentagon pulled it off and why the media complied. From Jessica Lynch's manufactured hero story to the Lynndie England torture photos to the bogus reports that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, Schechter builds a case that is corroborated by respected mainstream news sources. With commentary from Peter Arnett and reporters from The Nation, ABC News, BBC, Fox News, and People.
