The War You Don't See, a film by John Pilger

Now available online and on DVD agadem.co.uk This is a remarkable documentary in which the winner of journalism’s top awards for both press and broadcasting, including academy awards in the UK and US television, John Pilger, himself a renowned war reporter, questions the role the media in war. The War You Don’t See asks whether mainstream news has become an integral part of war-making. Focusing on the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, Pilger reflects on the history of the relationship between the media and government in times of conflict stretching back to World War I and explores the impact on the information fed to the public of the modern day practice of public relations in the guise of ’embedding’ journalists with the military. Featuring interviews with senior figures at major UK broadcasters, the BBC and ITV, and high profile journalists on both sides of the Atlantic, including Rageh Omaar and Dan Rather, the film investigates the reporting of government claims that Iraq harboured weapons of mass destruction www.facebook.com www.johnpilger.com Twitter: @WarYouDontSee

    The U.S. is the world’s largest genocidal state, remember Hiroshima. It was also the instigator of all dictatorships that emerged in Latin America (and others around the world), the Latin American military were instructed in how to torture in the school of West Point.
    But the average American is unable to have an objective and critical thought, was scheduled to also be seen as a savior, a just and correct, better than the rest.
    American, open your eyes now!

    I watched this film a year ago. it was not surprising seeing how the media can be capable of manipulating the truth. Propaganda has well been known hundreds of years ago when the first news paper was published. we can not expect the demagogues to give that away along with their own benefits. Corruption is the cause of twisted truth forecasting.

    China would not be the superpower it is today have the “democrats” in fact nato puppets taken over in 1989 in China. Today China would have been extremely poor and robbed. Jewish fascists ruling USA and Nato are just as bad as the nazis. I have many relatives slaughtered and raped by muslims and croats who where supported by USA and Nato.

    We live in a corrupt system. The solution? The Venus Project (a resourcedbased economy).

    Check out Paradise or Oblivion (doc).

    We can not live in this system any longer.

    ”Conspiracy theorist” is just a protection term to stop you from telling the truth. However the truth is that this scheme is no longer a ”theory” but has MORE THAN ENOUGH proof.

    This was a fantastic movie and everyone in America should watch it. It should be played during primetime on NBC, ABC, CBS or whatever. It should be played in schools, churches, and in military training sessions.

    But no, it won’t.

    why whenever the evil role is playing by USA people would just bounce up from nowhere n saying it completely is off. Then why would you say journalists are making money in countries like china and N. K.? The point is people in those are really suffering and their shitty gov. are actually stupidly doing shits to their citizens while us gov. acts really nice to most of the citizens. does that justify they won’t cheat people like shit in the other end of the world? it is wack.
