Bill Moyers: Buying the War

Bill Moyers is back on PBS tonight (at 9 PM in most locations) with an investigation of the reporting on the buildup to the war in Iraq. The special aims to explore not only how the Bush administration marketed the war but the role of the press in reporting it.

Also includes interviews with John Walcott and Warren Strobel, who were among the only skeptics regarding the Bush administration claims that Iraq had WMDs. Sounds interesting, and I’m glad to have Moyers back on PBS again (via Eric Alterman, who also points to Scott McLemee’s interesting IHE article on declining coverage of books in newspapers).
