ABSTRACT
The article focuses on absence of criticism in network journalism. The attack on Iraq on the pretext of "September 11" and "Saddam Hussein" is one the fine examples of people's acceptance. Though, they crave for good and reliable information, they are not well informed. American people are spoon-fed on cable, local or network news and continue to rely on their accuracy bereft of seriousness. On the other hand, PBS, BBC, and other media agencies offer significant and substantial analysis.
