Help Me! I’m Dreaming About Ari Fleischer.
By Swopa @ 10:59 am


Like a lot of folks here, I'm starting to feel the Fitzmas-like air of anticipation for the Scooter Libby perjury trial, which is due to get rolling next week. Between M.T. Wheeler's new book and the plans for FDL-in-the-court coverage of the trial, it promises to be a very exciting time.

Anatomy of Deceit: How the Bush Administration Used the Media to Sell the Iraq War and Out a Spy (Paperback)
by Marcy Wheeler
http://www.amazon.com/dp/0979176107?tag2=firedoglake-20

Book Description
What happens when Washington, D.C. pundits and journalists run in the same social circles as the powerful people they cover? When the President and his administration trade press access for loyalty? You get a complicit, uncritical press greasing the skids to a brutal war, conspiring to out a CIA agent, and muddying the waters of a grand jury investigation. In the fearful aftermath of 9/11, much of America’s pride — its free press — became an unquestioning propaganda arm.

Marcy Wheeler’s Anatomy of Deceit documents how the media promoted the Bush administration’s justification for war — that Iraq was on the verge of acquiring weapons of mass destruction — even though much of it was debunked. And it provides a play-by-play account of how Vice President Dick Cheney’s office first used the media to target a critic, former Ambassador Joe Wilson, and then to avoid criminal charges in the CIA leak case.

While the media was beating the drums of war and cozying up to the administration, citizen journalists were digging for the truth. Wheeler's compelling account tells the story, as it needs to be told — from outside the Beltway's cocktail circuit.
