Protests against the Bush administration and the Iraq War continued across
the country over the Memorial Day weekend. Today we spend the hour looking
at how presidents from Lyndon Johnson to George W. Bush sold wars to the
American public. Media critic Norman Solomon and the Media Education
Foundation have released a documentary titled "War Made Easy: How Presidents
and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death." The film is based on Solomon's book
of the same name. The film features extended commentary by Solomon and is
narrated by Sean Penn.
