Lowell Bergman and PBS Frontline has put up the first two parts of a great 4-part series titled News War, which examines the battle between the White House & the national media and how they both fight to set the national agenda. Part I, which aired last week, investigates the Plame affair and breaks down how the Bush administration manipulated the media, which, in turn, manipulated and exaggerated the threat posed by Saddam Hussein. Part III and IV will be up on the site soon. It’s well worth it, trust me.
