A real eye opener
on 15 December 2010
Having watched this documentary last night on ITV, I just felt that the trust I may sometimes put in fair and accurate journalism from the UK, and my believe in its impartiality and fairmess has been somewhat shaken. Both the BBC and ITV members who defended how they had covered stories seem to know that they had failed in how war stories had been covered. The basic premise for this powerful, insightful and important piece of work was no less than the fact that had proper, fair, factual and proper investigational journalism taken place over the Iraq war - we would never have gone to war in the first place. By the time you have finished watching this powerful and riverting documentary, you may just agree with Pilger. I know I did. I certainly gained a useful insight into why we are not so trusted in the world we live in and feel we try to govern fairly, and saw why large numbers of people are angry at the things we do and how people in the West have been duped into a false belief. And if you don't agree with these points (I don't think I would have this time yesterday) - then give this documentary a watch.
