Rather than focusing on the war between the allied troops and the Iraqis, this study examines instead the propaganda war waged by the American media. The author attacks the role of the media during the conflict, accusing them of silencing those wishing to voice their opposition to the war and so providing George Bush with the platform necessary to preach his war policies. By using their power and influence, the media were able to spoon-feed the American public with their version of the war. As a result of this action, they failed to assume their democratic responsibilities to report on all aspects of the conflict.
