Overview

Tumber and Palmer seem from their emphasis and examples to be British; they mention colleagues at a City University, so presumably they are academics of some sort. They analyze the media and coverage of the US and British invasion of Iraq from the negotiation at the United Nations in late 2002 through the invasion itself and into the post- invasion period. After accounts of embedded journalists, the safety of journalists, identifying with the military, and information management; they turn to coverage of the three phases and weapons of mass destruction, and the Hutton Inquiry and the BBC.
