War Made Easy: Norman Solomon on Media and Militarism

We talk with media critic Norman Solomon and hear excerpts from the powerful
documentary, "War Made Easy: How Presidents & Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death." Narrated by actor Sean Penn, this new film is being shown by peace
activists across the country to help stop the war in Iraq.

Film producers at the Media Education Foundation have adapted Solomon's book "War Made Easy" into a documentary. Community screenings are also being organized - including a benefit premiere in Oakland for Making Contact.

Norman is the Executive Director of the Institute for Public Accuracy. He is
also one of the founders of National Radio Project which produces Making
Contact. Our executive director, Lisa Rudman, sat down with Norman to
discuss how spin is spun.
