only 7 days left to watch it but if you havent seen it i really recommend it
this is a seriously excellent challenging piece of filmmaking
one of the best docus ive seen in a while
real shame this wasnt shown at a better slot really
great film about journalistic cowardice and political manipulation, the factors and culture that enable and almost promote it, the choke hold govt pr machines keep the journalists in, and the state of war reporting in general (there was one by jon snow on israel-palestine last year on ch4 that i also recommend)
the thing i find frustrating about this is its easy (and yes, admirable) for all these journos and politicians to hang their heads in shame and admit their guilt and errors now, but it seems too easy.

"Your own fault for bringing your kids to a 'battle" :mad:

Just watched it today, the whole thing is on youtube as well. Absolutely maddening from start to finish.
Shows up yer one from the bbc very badly and all that stuff with Israel.
Gonna have a look at the WikiRebels (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9xrO2Ch4Co) one later.

Great film, scathing and damning. Really appreciated the sheer anger of the film, on a subject that's rarely touched, and certainly not on itv.
