Media made easy

September 27, 2007

In yet more film news, War made easy is showing in “select theatres” across the USofA. The Valley Advocate says War made easy makes an easy job of the media,

Perhaps more searing than its indictment of the politicians who lead us to war is the film’s unflinching critique of the major media, including once-highly regarded newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post, for failing to serve as credible watchdogs. In fact, by excerpting from a broad range of war reporting produced by the American media over more than 50 years, the filmmakers show a media establishment that willingly and repeatedly promotes the government’s lies. link

If you can’t get to a selected theatre and can’t cough up the sobs for the DVD, head to Google video when you have 1 hour and 10 minutes to spare. And if you still want more you can watch media critic and War made easy author, Norman Solomon, talk about pro-war propoganda in this video.
