War Made Easy

Sean Penn narrates this expose of media distortion and presidential endorsement of arguably unjustified wars. Focusing on the parallels between Vietnam and Iraq, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official government spin and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations. Based on the acclaimed book by Norman Solomon.
