Tell Me Lies : Propaganda and Media Distortion in the Attack on Iraq Paperback
Edited by David Miller
Did the US and UK governments lie about weapons of mass destruction to promote an attack on Iraq?
Did the media hold them to account or act as cheerleaders for war?
Tell me Lies reveals the systematic propaganda used by both the US and UK governments to convince us of the 'threat' from Iraq.
It shows how we were deliberately misled into a war that has resulted in a humanitarian disaster in Iraq and threatens to create further instability and resentment of the US and UK throughout the Middle East.
Written by some of the world's leading journalists and commentators, it's a scathing indictment of the role of the mainstream media in legitimising government actions and undermining dissent.
Critics, activists and journalists from both sides of the Atlantic explore alternatives such as the internet and Al Jazeera and provide analysis and guidance on resisting the media war.
Contributors include John Pilger, Noam Chomsky, Robert Fisk, Edward Herman, Mark Thomas, Mark Steel, and cartoonist Steve Bell amongst many others.
