Watching the news with me tonight, my brother said, sardonically, "Wag the dog."

Wag The Dog, a 1997 movie produced and directed by Barry Levinson, with screenplay by David Mamet and Hilary Henkin, starred Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman.  

In the film, the President of the United States distracts the electorate away from a scandal by hiring a Hollywood film producer to construct a fake war.

Did I mention that it is a black comedy?

I think I'll order it from Netflix to watch again.
