The War You Don't See: Why Propaganda Hides the True Face of War

In John Pilger's documentary, "The War You Don't See," he exposes the manipulative nature of war propaganda, unveiling its role in shaping public opinion and justifying military actions. Pilger argues that the media, often acting as a mouthpiece for governments and powerful interests, perpetuates a narrative that glorifies war and conceals its true horrors. By analyzing historical examples and contemporary conflicts, the film challenges the notion that war is a necessary or inevitable evil, emphasizing the urgent need for independent journalism that holds power to account and reveals the human cost of war.
