PBS is airing a four-part program about the press, and how it handled the run-up to the Iraq War, how the Bush admin spun journalists on WMD, Plamegate and other important issues. The first part ran last night, and it can be viewed online. There are some excellent clips showing how Bush and Cheney tried to link Iraq to Al Queda, how they were so sure about WMD, how they tried to use the NY Times to spin public opinion on WMD. Overall the first part was pretty well done.
