Wars: There and Here

    Wars: 
There and Here

    Nothing
    new in the media front. The question of Iraq was
    erroneously conveyed and reduced by the media (both
    domestic and international) to a Bush vs. Peace confrontation.
    The coverage of our own war against narcoterrorism was also
    characterized by a vision both fragmented and simplified.
