"War Made Easy"

I've only watched this trailer, but if you have never thought critically about the role the media plays in our country, it looks like this movie might help you out.

From a financial perspective... just think about the money spent on war as our kids lose more ground in education, our infrastructure sags and our overall quality of public life declines.

If it doesn't sadden you it may be time to stop and think about it. By the way, this movie doesn't only focus on the media runup to the Iraq war. It seems to be looking at the role of the media in the runup to our many wars of the last 75 years. So this isn't a movie "for" Democrats or "for" Republicans. It's "for" anyone who watches the media without some discernment.

Have you read Al Gore's "The Assault on Reason"? I bought the book over the summer but never got around to reading it. This trailer has reminded me it's time to start.

No... I remember when he was promoting it the media kind of turned it into "The Assault On Al Gore" though.

The media should be afraid... they are slowly being exposed as pure idiot propagandaists... As long as they don't buy up the entire internet (they will) hopefully we can still find some free speech and independent thought for awhile.
