Iraq: the biggest journalistic failure in recent memory

“Look at Iraq. The biggest journalistic failure in recent memory. A series of lies, evasive manoeuvres, half-truths, concocted documents and also, a dishonest binary decision at the heart of it that went completely unchallenged: You’re either with us, or you’re for Saddam. Bunfight journalism did nothing to stop 600,000+ Iraqis losing their lives. In fact, I clearly remember Andrew Marr being openly contemptuous of those of us who marched against the war and saw it for what it really was: The most right-wing US administration in years staging a land-grab. ”
