TRT: 27:20

Danny Schecter, the News Dissector, is a writer, film-maker, TV producer (Rights & Wrongs was one of his TV shows), one of the founders of Globalvision, and media critic who lives and works in New York.  As Schecter and other independent media makers have been pointing out, the corporate media has been influential in molding people's opinions about what is going on in the world more and more for the last 20 years, as it gets more and more concentrated in the hands of fewer and fewer media corporations which are also close to the US Government.  Sue Supriano caught up with Danny Schecter to talk to him while he was in San Francisco for the opening of his new film.

In this show Schecter concentrates on his just released film, WMD- Weapons of Mass Deception. The film is jam packed with stories and facts about how the corporate media influences public opinion with distortions, lies, and Hollywood film approaches as to what is going on in Iraq and with the American military. It explores and explains the role of the media in whipping up support for the war in Iraq and goes into details about how it specifically does that.  For example, some "embedded journalists" are interviewed in the film and it becomes clear how "embedded journalists" adopt the interests and concerns of the military they get personally close while being "embedded".  Another example of the many many details included in the film is how the details of how some of the pictures shown about the happiness of the Iraqi people to see the US military were totally staged.  The film is very very informative, interesting and an important contribution to help American media consumers "wake up".,,
