About this title
In this provocative, hard-hitting, insightful book CNN's leading military analyst during the war against Iraq tells all: from how CNN beat the much touted network newscasts to how it allowed itself to become an instrument of enemy propaganda with its reports from Baghdad after Iraq imposed censorship. Provides a balanced view of correspondent Peter Arnett's reporting, as well as: the greatest weaknesses of the Coalition's ground campaign, why CNN was better equipped & motivated to lick its well-established competitors, how Bob Woodward & others misled the public on how well our forces were doing. Photos.From Library Journal:
Television coverage of the Gulf War was heavily assisted by military analysts. Major General Smith, former commandant of the National War College and one of the two main military men at the Cable News Network (CNN), describes CNN's studios and equipment and the war-effort work of executives, producers, anchors, and reporters. While he devotes a significant amount of the book to explaining his own role (e.g, which military experts helped him and how he prepared for his commentaries), Smith also covers other topics: how other media covered the war, censorship, military vs. media tensions. His analysis of purely military subjects, at times, seems hastily tied into a media issue to fit his book's theme. This is mainly for intense followers of the media and military strategy. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/1/91.
