Friday, September 15, 2006
As the Bush administration returns to the airwaves to re-sell the Iraq war, critics continue to question how it got sold in the first place. In the new book Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War, David Corn and Michael Isikoff look at how a system of leaks and anonymous sources allowed misleading information to wend its way from the administration to the press and back again. Corn joins Brooke to discuss the lifespan of a lie.
