The War You Don't See.

Just watched this excellent and thought provoking documentary by John Pilger an Australian journalist based in London.  I am not sure if this has been shown on mainstream television around the world, if not it should be.  It is an 1hr and 36 mins long but it could have gone on longer and I would have kept watching, I encourage you to make time to view it.

'From the award-winning director of The War on Democracy comes John Pilger's latest work, The War You Don't See. This hard-hitting exposé scrutinizes the effects of the media during wartime, asking what is the role of the media in rapacious wars.

When symbols are separated from facts and the facts don't matter, could the media be accused of conspiring to play down the carnage and of using 'embedded journalism' to amplify the lies? This documentary unveils the war you don't see and allows you to make up your own mind.'
