While a major military force waged war in Iraq, a second more subtle war was being fought alongside; a war fought with cameras, satellite technology and an army of journalists.

Revelling in its unprecedented access, the media coverage quickly escalated into an around-the-clock global news marathon, bringing the dark reality of war directly into viewer's homes. The American networks considered the War in Iraq their finest hour.

But why were other countries seeing a vastly different war to that screened on American TV?

Frustrated with his media colleagues refusal to confront this question before, during or after the war, former network journalist and media critic Danny Schechter finally delivers an answer with WMD, a comical and decisive documentary which smashes through so-called "objective reporting" to challenge media complicity with the U.S. government in presenting the Iraq War with extreme bias.
