Hmmm. Here's another interesting FR thread on this...

Bush's War: PBS/FRONTLINE. Note that the poster FilmCutter claims to be "the editor on the project" and projects himself as "your humble conservative editor.".

I'm going to post a link there to this thread...

This certainly does not agree with filmcutter’s take. When in doubt, go against the PBS employee.

I was the editor (the cutter of pictures and sound) and proud to be a part of this program.

Here are some other reviews:

Salon.com TV Daily

“Frontline’s two-part series on the most deeply stupid, tedious war in the history of the world.”

“Bush Bash’s PBS (again) and the New York Times Helps”
What a strange coincidence that the Bush administration recently submitted the largest funding cut ever proposed for public broadcasting, and next week, PBS’ distinguished Frontline series will mark the fifth anniversary of the Iraq invasion by airing Bush’s War, which PBS describes as television’s definitive documentary analysis of the war.

Also includes a nice plug for the web site: “And no worries if you miss it, since they will have the video on the show’s website along with oodles of extras.”
