This is a media analysis of the 2003 war with Iraq. In the paper, the mainstream media journalism of George Packer and the independent news journalism of Howard Zinn are analyzed. By realizing how journalistic bias is provided in the work of Packer, one can understand how American propaganda for the war is disseminated to the American public. The paper examines how, although there is a complete lack of evidence to support American intervention in Iraq, it is clear that the American public is not being told the truth about why they have invaded this country.

From the Paper:

"This media study will analyze the various perspectives that journalists use to portray the War in Iraq within the foreign policy issues of the United States. In this manner, various politically influenced journalists reflect differing points of view on this intervention. In the mainstream American media there is a effort to encourage the continued American presence in Iraq. However, there is a counter measure to this form of large-scale nationalist propaganda in the works of Howard Zinn as an independent news source."
