This is a free broadcast for the public for education purposes. Explore the role the press played in the lead-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Opens with a look at coverage of the run-up to the Iraq War by the mainstream media, whom critics have slammed for not sufficiently challenging Bush administration claims about Iraq's possession of WMDs and its possible links to Al Qaeda. Commenting are Dan Rather; Tim Russert ("Meet the Press"); Bob Simon of "60 Minutes"; former CNN president Walter Isaacson; and John Walcott, Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel of McClatchy Newspapers.
