An interview with journalist and filmmaker John Pilger is presented. He discusses his film "The War You Don't See" about media coverage of war, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan. He comments on reporters embedded in Iraq and asserts that the Crimean War was the last conflict without censored reporting. Pilger suggests that Fox News television network, the "New York Times" newspaper, and the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) promote war.
