Wars: There and Here

Wars: 
        There and Here

Nothing
new in the media front. The question of Iraq was
erroneously conveyed and reduced by the media (both
domestic and international) to a Bush vs. Peace confrontation.
The coverage of our own war against narcoterrorism was also
characterized by a vision both fragmented and simplified.
