War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us To Death: Vol 28

Volume 28
Norman Solomon’s work has been praised by the Los Angeles Times as “brutally persuasive” and essential “for those who would like greater context with their bitter morning coffee.” This film now offers a chance to see that context on the screen.
Originally released in 2008 this film could have just as easily been released today - 2014.

Based on the best-selling book of the same title, this chilling, fast-moving, impeccably researched film exposes the many strategies used by administrations, both Democratic and Republican, to promote their agendas for war from Vietnam to Iraq. How a country is persuaded to accept military aggression as the final answer to international disputes? Without carefully planned propaganda and the cooperation of a compliant media, a consensus for war would not be ‘easy’. Examining the parallels between the Vietnam war and the war in Iraq. Guided by media critic Norman Solomon’s meticulous research and tough-minded analysis, the film presents disturbing examples of propaganda and media complicity from the present alongside rare footage of political leaders and leading journalists from the past, including Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, dissident Senator Wayne Morse, and news correspondents Walter Cronkite and Morley Safer.
