9/11: When truth became a casualty of war
How did the 9/11 attacks impact the media?
Last Modified: 10 Sep 2011 09:24

This week on the Listening Post: A special look at the media in the post-9/11 world.

Few would forget where they were on September 11, 2001, but most knew the world would never be the same again.

When the two hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Centre that day, the impact was registered by those who perished that day – and the countless others who have perished in the wars fought ever since.

But the force of the impact was also felt on the media landscape itself and its complicity in the construction of the global war on terror that rearranged and justified the political events in the ten years that have passed.
 
In a series of interviews with journalists and media commentators, we look back at a decade of lies, misrepresentation, manipulation, flawed or fake intelligence, and how many in the western media bought into that narrative and colluded in its construction.

 

Listening Post can be seen each week at the following times GMT: Saturday: 0830, 1930; Sunday: 1430; Monday: 0430.
