How CNN Fought the War: A View from the Inside

How CNN Fought the War: A View from the Inside

by Perry M. Smith

Editorial Reviews

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.-- Bruce Rosenstein, ``USA Today'' Lib., Arlington, Va.
