Weapons of Mass Deception (USA/2004)

Buch/Regie: Danny Schechter; 89 Min; eng.OV.

WMD, Weapons of Mass Deception: "There were two wars going on in Iraq - one was fought with armies of soldiers, bombs and a fearsome military force. The other was fought alongside it with cameras, satellites, armies of journalists and propaganda techniques. One war was rationalized as an effort to find and disarm WMDs - Weapons of Mass Destruction; the other was carried out by even more powerful WMDs, Weapons of Mass Deception."

"A comprehensive and devastating critique of the TV news networks' complacency and complicity in the war on Iraq... brilliantly argued and scrupulously documented... a must see" -- Chicago Reader

"More cohesive and devastating than Fahrenheit 911" -- Boston Phoenix
