Room is a look at how the media portrayed
in America is only America's truth for
some people's purpose. Live from Iraq,
Control Room shows you what happens
to a country that gets taken over and
how even the media is a reflection of
who has the power.
film people talk to members of international
and American press, Armed forces officers
and more experts on the relationship the
Arab and Western world have. Also you
get to see how satellite television has
changed the game of journalism and it's
not all for the good. The war in Iraq
to many people wasn't about if the United
States could win but more about how and
in this 86 minute film you see questionable
reaches by the Presidency and the armed
forces when it comes to action and practice.
get to see how Al Jazeera has come from
the bottom up and looks to provide information
to the Arab world while catching major
flack from the many media outlets for
doing the same thing they do all the time.
Also how does fear, paranoia and patriotism
effect what you see in news coverage?
Many examples are shown in this film.

areas affected by war!
