The truth about war reporting

Report the glory, never the horror

George Seldes in World War I

This film excerpt was from the 1996 Academy-Award-nominated documentary feature film by Rick Goldsmith, Tell the Truth and Run: George Seldes and the American Press.

Do you think that George Bush and his fellow crooks invented “embedded” war correspondents?

Nope. It goes way, way back.

The key: Glory, yes. Horror, no.

Reporting the truth of war was once grounds for death by firing squad.

Again, young George Seldes learns this the hard way.

If war were ever reported accurately, a sane population would never support let alone participate in one.
