Movie Info

Self-described "news dissector" Danny Schechter, who has worked as a producer for a number of major broadcast media outlets (including CNN and ABC News), examines news coverage of the war in Iraq in this activist documentary. In WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception, Schechter explores how the U.S. military and George W. Bush's advisors "stage managed" the Iraq war in order to win a favorable opinion from the public and keep the media's eyes away from issues and situations they found problematic, from using savvy psychology to convince citizens that Iraq possessed certain weapons it never actually had, to "embedding" journalists with companies of troops to produce reports sympathetic to the ground forces. WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception was named Best Documentary in Texas at the 2004 Austin Film Festival.
