Lannan liberals ensure John Pilger’s THE WAR YOU DON’T SEE remains a documentary Americans won’t see

John Pilger's documentary THE WAR YOU DON'T SEE was due to make its US debut this week, before its Santa Fe venue, the Lannan Foundation, abruptly cancelled the event. Given less than two days notice, plane tickets cancelled on the personal direction of the foundation's funder Patrick Lannan, with no explanation offered. Pilger details on Zcom his concern for what just days ago had been an enthusiastic venue. The Lannan organization still boasts it will be hosting Tariq Ali and Norman Finkelstein among others, so it's hard to deduce where Pilger's film crossed the line. My guess? Not just the role the US media plays in promoting war, but its bias toward you know who. Here's the trailer, available on johnpilger.com. The War You Don't See (trailer) from John Pilger on Vimeo.
