Description: Author Norman Soloman teams with activist/actor Sean Penn to encourage critical thinking about media spin during wartime by introducing viewers to the techniques of war propaganda and seeing just how those techniques have been implemented from Vietnam to Iraq. Based on the best-selling book of the same title, War Made Easy: How Presidents & Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death exposes the practice of promoting a prolonged policy of intrusive militarism under the patriotic banner of the War on Terror. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
