Buying the War

Investigative journalist Bill Moyers returned to the airwaves last night. His first show reports upon how the US media propelled the administrations lies leading to the Iraq invasion & occupation. Its being repeated on pbs, however you can view it online here.

Four years ago on May 1, President Bush landed on the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln and delivered a speech in front of a giant "Mission Accomplished" banner. Despite profound questions and the increasing violence in Baghdad, many in the press confirmed the White House's claim that the war was won. How did they get it so wrong? How did the evidence disputing the existence of weapons of mass destruction and the link between Saddam Hussein and 9/11 continue to go largely unreported?
