A lengthy excerpt from E&P Editor Greg Mitchell’s new book, just published this week, appears at the Salon.com site tonight.
The book, “So Wrong for So Long: How the Press, the Pundits — and the President — Failed on Iraq” (Union Square Press) features a foreword by famed war reporter Joe Galloway and a preface by Bruce Springsteen.
The Salon article offers an overview of the five-year period covered by the book, from “runup” to “surge,” charting the media response to the war (including some excellent reporting from Iraq) and the plight of U.S. soldiers there and veterans.
