      Author 1 We re going to write a book that is a vaguely coherent string of text evidence culled from multiple sources.Author 2 Isn t that plagiarism Won t we get in trouble Author 1 Not if we put just enough sentences in it that we can pass off as our own.Author 2 I don t know, dude That sounds kinda shifty What will our book be about Author 1 All the ethically and constitutionally questionable things Bush did during his presidency Author 2 Jesus, dude I don t know That s going to be longer than [...]

      When I started reading this, and judging by the default cover seen on , I thought it might be a cheap and immature book, but it gets better the further through you read It analyses the media and it s bias coverage of the war, touching on Orwellian ideas, the demands for sanitation, and embedded journalists.

    3. Jason says:
      I read this back before I had completely burned out on politics, when I was still bitter about the 2004 election and wanted some examples to footnote my damn the man rhetoric It was an interesting read, but it, like all partisan books on politics, fails in doing anything other than preaching to the choir.

    4. Mike says:
      Nothing terribly earth shattering here Most of the information discussed has become widespread and acknowledged in the years since its publication However, it is a very interesting look at the Bush Administration from a media propaganda viewpoint.

    5. NancyHelen says:
      Chilling, amusing and generally incredibly eye opening You won t be able to think about George W Bush and his invasion of Iraq in the same way again It makes everyone look really bad.

    6. Neda says:
      Absolutely brilliant Filled with solid references An eye opener on politics Spread the word Recommend to all.

    7. Regina says:
      I feel both very naive and incredibly dirty after reading this Propaganda is an incredibly powerful tool, and it s clear that it is very difficult to trust folks who have an agenda to present accurate information This makes me glad that I found sites like Thomas and the Bureau of Labor Statistics so that I can look at the full text of laws or raw data and make my own determination rather than relying on summarized articles or news reports, which may distort facts to suit their own needs.I don t [...]

      , deep analysis about the role of the media and the P.R companies in wars especially the two gulf storm operation wars, also the chapter about the media is the one that excited me in this book and the finish itself with bringing the Arabian point of view

    9. sologdin says:
      not really a bad book, and likely up to the same standard as RS s other offerings, in terms of their analysis of the PR functions at work on behalf of state and industry it is a bit thin, though, and somewhat off the beaten path of their other texts, which are about industry, rather than policy.but i caught this at a time when there were dozens of other books about the iraq war, so perhaps a bit overloaded.


    10. Andy Luke says:
      Well presented analysis of the people, companies and news media presentations around the 2003 invasion of Iraq, providing strongly put reasoning of careful propaganda as casual bullets.

    11. Tom Darrow says:
      Well researched, but most of the information is common knowledge now One sided in its approach.


    12. Beverly says:
      This book explains why no one is talking about Saudi Arabia.It explains a lot of other things too With marvelous detail Fall in hate with the president all over again
