Selling the Iraq War How U.S. News Media Helped Bush Administration Sell the Case for War. Legendary Broadcaster Bill Moyers Returns to Airwaves
Moyers Takes a Critical Look at How U.S. News Media Helped Bush Admin Sell the Case for War. The debut episode of his new series Bill Moyers Journal is titled “Buying the War.” Moyers makes the case that the press has yet to come to terms with its role in enabling the Bush Administration to go to war on false pretenses. Moyers joins us to play excerpts of “Buying the War” and talk about the media, the late journalist David Halberstam, corporate consolidation of the airwaves, and the hope he sees from the grassroots.
