Kirk, Michael; Wiser, Michael
March 2008
Nieman Reports;Spring2008, Vol. 62 Issue 1, p10
The authors reflect on their experience in reporting and producing "Bush's War," a film about the Iraq War. They claim to have examined how bureaucratic battles among U.S. President George W. Bush and his administration led to some of the critical decisions in the Iraq War. The authors say they focused on the relationship between Vice President Richard Cheney and Secretary of State Colin Powell. They assert that journalism must provide citizens with enough information to make an informed judgment about who is responsible for the decisions made.
