WMD focuses on the role played by the Pentagon propaganda machine and the media in the Iraq War. Media critic, Danny Schechter's hard-hitting dissection of information warfare asks if the media was complicit in the selling of the Iraq War and suggests the government's 'media-management' is now out of control? The film investigates the embed program and 'infiltrates' Fox News. It comes on the heels of the New York Times admitting that its pre-war coverage was deeply flawed and differed dramatically from reporting seen around the world. WMD provides shocking revelations into a US population, ill-served and under-informed by an unquestioning news media in crisis.
