Antiwar Radio: Peter Hart

Peter Hart, activism director at Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), discusses the media’s warm reception to Treasury Department claims that Iran’s government is actively aiding al-Qaeda; the suspicious timing of these kinds of articles every time there’s a debate on withdrawal or troop drawdowns from Iraq; how the US condemns Iranian “foreign interference” in neighboring Iraq while ignoring the foreign US military’s continued occupation of the country; and the media’s failure to develop a healthy skepticism of “anonymous government officials” since falling for the Iraq War lies.
