Summary
"When News Lies is an inside story of the media war behind the Iraq War, the American government's efforts to manipulate war coverage by playing on the media's own timidity and reluctance to do its job- report the news to the public. Veteran author, video journalist, and media critic Danny Schechter ("the News Dissector") takes us on a sometimes frightening, sometimes humorous journey behind the scenes of the media machine that sold us an invasion and rallied the public to support it." "This innovative and timely book includes the script and full length DVD of Schechter's award-winning and controversial documentary, "WMD" (Weapons of Mass Deception). Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
