This book reveals how : top Bush officials advocated the invasion of Iraq even before Bush took office, but waited until September 2002 to inform the public, through what the White House termed a 'product launch' ; White House officials used repetition and misinformation to create the false impression that Iraq was behind the events of 11 September ; forged documents and other deceptions built the claim that Iraq possessed huge stockpiles of banned weapons ; and much more.

There were two wars going on in Iraq—one fought with armies of soldiers, bombs, and fearsome military force. The other was fought alongside it with cameras, satellites, armies of journalists, and propaganda techniques. One war was rationalized as an effort to find and disarm WMDs—Weapons of Mass Destruction; the other was carried out by even more powerful WMDs, Weapons of Mass Deception. Veteran journalist and media watcher Danny Schechter, a former ABC and CNN producer, monitored and now analyzes the cheerleading for a war in which reporting was sanitized, staged, and suppressed. The author of Media Wars: News at a Time of Terror, The More You Watch the Less You Know, and News Dissector, brings an insider’s knowledge based on thirty years in journalism with an outsider’s perspective to critiquing media coverage. Throughout the war he was "self-embedded" at Mediachannel.org, the world’s largest online media issues network. Schechter’s insightful, wide-ranging critique of the American media’s war coverage targets the way in which a virtual merger between the Pentagon and the media produced a war spectacle that the American public was primed to see, media collusion in the campaign to discredit the UN, "rightwing liberation theology" as war propaganda, the cozy relationship between news anchors and retired officers hired as military analysts, the controversies over Peter Arnett and Geraldo Rivera, the looting of Baghdad, the lack of media focus on civilian casualties, the disparities in coverage between U.S. and foreign media, and more. Schechter’s disturbing indictment of the major media as purveyors of infotainment instead of news will serve as a wake-up call to journalists, media critics, and everyone who cares about a well-informed citizenry as the basis of democracy.

The attacks of 9/11 led to a war on Iraq, although there was neither tangible evidence that the nation's leader, Saddam Hussein, was linked to Osama bin Laden nor proof of weapons of mass destruction. Why, then, did the Iraq war garner so much acceptance in the United States during its primary stages? Mass Deception argues that the George W. Bush administration manufactured public support for the war on Iraq. Scott A. Bonn introduces a unique, integrated, and interdisciplinary theory called "critical communication" to explain how and why political elites and the news media periodically create public panics that benefit both parties. Using quantitative analysis of public opinion polls and presidential rhetoric pre- and post-9/11 in the news media, Bonn applies the moral panic concept to the Iraq war. He critiques the war and occupation of Iraq as violations of domestic and international law. Finally, Mass Deception connects propaganda and distortion efforts by the Bush administration to more general theories of elite deviance and state crime.

The twentieth century has been called the century of propaganda. This book explores the concept of propaganda in a genuinely multi-disciplinary way. It begins by defining what propaganda is and how it came into existence, before analysing the three concepts that underpin all propaganda - symbolism, rhetoric and myth. The book then looks at the key elements of propaganda, namely emotion, hyperbole, manipulation and utopla, before presenting a unique theory that the core of propoganda lies in a basic social construction of enmity. Points made in the book are backed up by illuminating case studies from recent history that focus on spin, the war in Afghanistan, single-issue groups, negative advertising, and a powerful final chapter analysing the war in Iraq in 2003.
