Critic Reviews for WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception
Whatever your ideology, if you believe that democracy depends on getting the truth from your government and your press, WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception is required viewing.
A former ABC producer at 20/20, Mr. Schechter revels in his autonomy and crams too many points in too many minutes.
He doesn't have a smoking-gun clip reel to illustrate his monotonous analysis.
WMD is an intricate critique of television media coverage of the Iraq War. Director Schechter suggests that the media cowed down to Administration tactics.

Is the media to blame? Hell yeah. This documentary is about the media's handling of war zones. The government has recently been feeding the media images to display. Just one more system of control. I don't watch TV news for a reason. Watch this movie and see for yourself.
Good argument for why the media failed us. I'm one of those that sought out alternative news sources ... Good documentary that'll ake you think twice about your news.
