Product Description:
The way that war is reported to the public is often spun and made more interesting and heroic for the general public. In this 46-minute video, find out about how some stories are exaggerated in order to make them bolster the war effort. In the case of the highly publicized capture of Private Jessica Lynch during the Iraq War, many facts were misrepresented to make the rescue seem more heroic in order to counter the wavering popularity of the war. The practice of inserting journalists into military units is also examined. This film is a look at media ethics, the use of war propaganda and the state of war journalism as it exists today.
