When News Lies offers the untold story of the media war behind the Iraq war. Author and filmmaker Danny Schechter offers up an indictment of the media for its role in promoting and allegedly misreporting the Iraq war, and of the American government itself for its efforts to manipulate war coverage. At turns both humorous and horrifying, When News Lies is as much about the media’s own timidity and reluctance to do its job as it is about the Iraq debacle.

This digital media edition includes the full length DVD of Danny’s award winning and controversial documentary, WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception, as well as a Foreword by Vanity Fair columnist Michael Wolff and prefaces by independent journalist Dahr Jamail and information warfare specialist Colonel Sam Gardiner, USAF (ret.).
