There's certainly truth to this, but the issue over the Oliver Stone
series is focused on very recent history.  And that clashes most
directly and sharply with the imperial mythologies of the Empire.

If we take the more recent example of WMDs, nobody in the corporate
media wanted to address this lie directly, so it's repeated as though
it's true without any contradication on vehicles like Fox News.  A
very sizeable portion of the American public actually believes that
Iraq had WMDs.  A proportion believes that the US won the Vietnam War.
