Abstract:

Journalist Amy Goodman criticizes the pro-military bias of the corporate news media, whose reportage of the U.S. invasion of Iraq downplays or ignores the impact on civilians while overstating the success of U.S. military operations. She illustrates her points with clips of mainstream media juxtaposed with rare footage from independent reporters in Iraq. She argues that dialogue is vital to a healthy democracy, and that the commercial news media have failed to represent the "true face of war."
