SPECIAL FEATURE: The JOURNAL on War
Ameican soldier in Afghanistan.
"How did the mainstream media get it so wrong?"

That was the question posed in BILL MOYERS JOURNAL inaugural broadcast, the Emmy-winning BUYING THE WAR which took a hard look at the role of the media in the run up to the Iraq War. Since that time the JOURNAL has kept on the story — or stories — of the U.S. at war. From news straight from the "forgotten front" of Afghanistan to the toll the war is taking of the families of reserve troops here at home the JOURNAL continues to report on the costs of war that can't be measured in money.

You can explore and share JOURNAL coverage of Iraq and Afghanistan and the war at home in the video player below. Also, explore our other related video collections: The JOURNAL on Veteran's Issues and The JOURNAL on Torture.
