Buying The War #FakeNews



Over a decade ago Bush administration forced the United States into a war so poorly prepared and executed it soon turned into a complete catastrophe. The fact of how the bureaucrats misled the country has been already expressed, but they couldn’t have done it by themselves; they needed an obedient and docile press, to propagate their disinformation as actual news and encourage them to continue to do so.
Since then thousands of people have perished, and many are suffering and dying to this day. Yet the story of how the media was sold to the White House has not been elaborated in depth. If we look back at the moments before the invasion, we’ll see that the US media relinquished its liberty and doubt to a great extent to accompany the US government in advancing to war.
Two weeks before he’ll command America to war, President Bush calls a media conference to convince the people for removing Saddam Hussein from power. His administration has been persistent to associate Iraq with 9/11. Many times during this meeting he will call upon 9/11 and Al Qaeda to legitimize a deterrent attack on a country that has not assaulted America.
The seed of this story lies in the terror of 9/11… Like everyone else media was bewildered by the horror and havoc on that day. As people responded to the barbarity of a terrorist attack a flood of unity spread across the country. And as the military prepared to attack the terrorists, there was almost zero tolerance for condemnatory inspection by the media. Walter Isaacson was then Chairman and CEO of CNN.
When American forces attacked the terrorist in Afghanistan, the media across the country started to report the civilian casualties. But soon, the “patriot police” came and started to influence the news. Isaacson sent his staff a memo: “it seems perverse” he said, “to focus too much on the casualties or hardship in Afghanistan.” And he instructed his employees to balance the images and stories of civilian killings with reminders of September 11th.
