From the Publisher:

When News Lies By Danny Schechter offers an up to date indictment of the role media played in promoting and misreporting the war on Iraq. It is an analysis of how and why the media got it wrong that pinpoints the failures of journalism and the collusion of media companies with the Bush Administration. The author of EMBEDDED: Weapons of Mass Deception (Prometheus 2003), an account of the TV coverage of the US invasion, returns with a more comprehensive, updated and insider look at the media complicity that Schechter argues "made the war possible."

"Most of the anti-war movement focused on the crimes of the Bush Administration ignoring the mainstream media, its far more effective accomplice," says former network producer Danny Schechter (ABC, CNN). "The government orchestrated the war while the media marketed it. You couldn't have one without the other."

WHEN NEWS LIES includes the feature -length DVD of the prize-winning film WMD (Weapons of Mass Deception). The book will also include the complete script as well as a discussion of the challenges of exposing media with media with a documentary on the media war fought alongside the military campaign. WHEN NEWS LIES also includes a foreword by acclaimed media writer and Vanity Fair columnist Michael Wolff and prefaces by independent Iraq reporter Dahr Jamail and information warfare specialist Colonel (Ret) Sam Gardiner, a war analyst for the PBS News Hour with Jim Lehrer.

From the Author:

From the Author's Prologue:

"This is not just an examination of the coverage of the war in Iraq but also of my own attempt, however imperfect, to scrutinize and challenge it. Together, this unique multimedia "package" adds ammunition to the media war I am still fighting against the ongoing deceptive coverage of the Iraq War. When News Lies is an appeal for a broader engagement with our media as an issue. I have answered my call to action and now hope readers will as well. This work is one journalist's cry for truth and media responsibility."
