Wag the Dog (1997)

| |

In the coverage of the "Libya Situation", Adam and John have been discussing about the possibilities of the coverage being fake in a Wag the Dog (1997) style.  I'm not sure how this one has never been picked for a NA Film Monday Movie, but, that has now been rectified.   

Synopsis from The Book of Knowledge (aka Wikipedia):

"Wag the Dog is about how a Washington spin doctor who, merely days before a presidential election, distracts the electorate from a sex scandal by hiring a Hollywood film producer to construct a fake war with Albania. The scheme enlists the aid of a country music singer, who creates several theme songs for the war; a "fad king"; and a costume designer, who helps create a fictional special forces unit to fight the wars supposed battles."
