With the fifth anniversary of the start of the war approaching, E&P Editor Greg Mitchell is leading a discussion on the media performance at the Talking Points Memo site all week. The site recently won wide attention in winning a George Polk Award.
Others taking part in the online “roundtable,” which revolves around Mitchell’s new book, include media critic/professor Jay Rosen, famed war reporter Joe Galloway, veterans leader Paul Rieckhoff, military historian Lt. Col. Bob Bateman and Spencer Ackerman, who has covered the war. Readers can join in, too.
Mitchell’s book is “So Wrong for So Long: How the Press, the Pundits — and the President — Failed on Iraq” (Union Square Press). He is also featured on this coming weekend’s edition of NPR’s “On the Media,” airing nationallly.
