WMD weapons of mass deception by Danny Schechter( visu )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 338 libraries worldwide
There were two wars going on in Iraq. One was fought with armies of soldiers, bombs and a mighty military force. The other was fought alongside it, with cameras, satellites, armies of journalists and propaganda techniques. One war was rationalised as an effort to find and disarm Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), the other was carried out by what many considered to be even more powerful WMDs - Weapons of Mass Deception. This film is Danny Schechter's examination of what he saw as patriotic correctness, bias and "militainment" aspects of the coverage of the war in Iraq, and the role of the United States government and its associates and sympathisers in the tone and content of this reporting
