Anyone watch John Pilger's "The War You Don't See" the other night? Very interesting and pretty disturbing, if maybe a little one-sided, but you know what you're getting with Pilger and in the face of all the propaganda spewed out by the BBC and Sky etc it's easily forgiveable. At the very least you get information you don't regularly get on mainstream news channels. Granted, some of the revelations of bias amongst journalists and pressure to toe a certain line might be old news to some of us but it was still good to hear actual journalists, newsreaders, politicians and soldiers admit what we've always suspected - while they were doing their jobs they were wittingly involved in a concerted effort to deceive the public. And the Wikileaks footage of the journalists and civilians being gunned down from an Apache was sickening. Still, I'm sure their deaths were necessary to protect them from terrorism. Better to die today than self-radicalize tomorrow, after all.
