Summary "This film examines recent first amendment battles between the Bush Administration and the press in America. How much can the press reveal about secret government programs in the war on terror without jeopardizing national security? It explores today's high-profile debates over the role of the press, including clashes between journalists and the government over whether or not a reporter has the right to keep a source confidential. In the summer of 2003, the news media were raising questions of Saddam Hussein's weapons regime just as news about the war grew more violent by the day. New critics emerged, and there were more questions over whether or not the Administration overstated the problem of WMD. (From the UK, in English)CC WS "-- website
