THE PREMIERE OF BILL MOYERS JOURNAL, "BUYING THE WAR"

//www.pbs.org/moyers/moyersonamerica/index.html

The premiere of BILL MOYERS JOURNAL, "Buying the War," explores the role of the press in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq, including how the government's claims about weapons of mass destruction and terrorist ties to Saddam Hussein were largely accepted at face value by the mainstream media and cheer-leaded by the "partisan press." The marketing of the war has been much examined, but BILL MOYERS JOURNAL looks at how key elements of the media bought into the propaganda. "Buying the War" features interviews with Dan Rather, formerly of CBS; Tim Russert of "Meet the Press"; Bob Simon of "60 Minutes"; Walter Pincus of the Washington Post; Walter Isaacson, then president of CNN; editor at large of The New Republic and author Peter Beinart; talk show host Phil Donahue; and James Wolcott, Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel of Knight Ridder, which was acquired by the McClatchy Company in 2006. Virtually alone, Knight Ridder asked for the hard evidence to back up the president's justification of the war.

"We're sending young men and women, and nowadays not so young men and women, to risk their lives. And everyone wants to be behind them. And everyone should be behind them," says James Walcott, Washington bureau chief of Knight Ridder. "The question for us in journalism is, are we really behind them when we fail to do our jobs?"
