Re: Is the media responsible for the war in Iraq?

Is the media responsible for the war in Iraq? NOIs the US government responsible for the war in Iraq? YESIs the media responsible for the war continuing in Iraq? Definitely The US government started the war at a time when questioning the government was considered treason because of the post 9-11 patriotism. And the media will always try to say what the most people will support from its viewers. The media couldn’t have stopped the war from happening, the American people had to do that, but to this day the media refuses to put a human face on the war, or show what the US government has truly caused in the world. Unfortunately it’s not like a movie where the media go to any length to get the truth. In reality they go to any length to get you to watch them instead of the other channels.
