Watch "Buying the War" Tonight on OETA at 8 P.M.

Make sure to watch the new PBS series -- BILL MOYERS JOURNAL -- on Wednesday, April 25 at 8 p.m. on OETA, He does special report called "Buying the War," a 90-minute documentary that explores the role of the press in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq.

The documentary will show how The United States media covered the war just as President Bush wanted them to- asking no questions and following blindly.

"What the conservative media did was easy to fathom; they had been cheerleaders for the White House from the beginning and were simply continuing to rally the public behind the President — no questions asked. How mainstream journalists suspended skepticism and scrutiny remains an issue of significance that the media has not satisfactorily explored," says Moyers.

Thanks Lacey for posting this. My family watched the special last night. It was well worth our time and generated quite a lot of discussion. I hope others are tuning in to this important new series by Bill Moyers.
