For over twenty-five years, the media have portrayed the conflict in Northern Ireland as an irrational confrontation - a war that was not called a war and had no objective social basis. 'Terrorism' caused 'the Troubles'; the British Army kept the peace. The conflict was effectively marginalised in the minds of the public at large.
This is a unique and timely work, based on over 100 interviews with journalists, government officials, political activists and politicians, which lays bare the lies of the propagandists and paints a disturbing picture of the success of the media managers in manipulating our preceptions of the conflict in Northern Ireland.
