9781849541268: Shooting the Messenger: The Political Impact of War Reporting

Wars have dominated politics since history began. In the modern era most of what the media reports on foreign conflicts comes from a small band of war correspondents. As the furore over the Iraq, Afghan and now the Libyan wars demonstrates, Western governments and militaries often collude to keep their voters in the dark about the causes and the conduct of wars waged in their name. In this entertaining and unspun account of modern war reporting, the authors ask whether the media itself drives democracies to war. Or does it serve to constrain evil, ignorant and messianic leaders? Are the heirs of William Howard Russell, the first modern war reporter, watchdogs or lapdogs? In the age of Wikileaks and corrupt media empires, what is the political impact of war correspondents? Are they the heroes or harlots of their profession?

Review:

Shooting the Messenger is an essential read for anyone interested in what generals and politicians are doing to shape and restrict good war reporting. Paul L. Moorcraft and Philip M. Taylor give us the big historical picture as well as the small anecdotal and entertaining details that make this book a great read. These two academics have hammered out a text that catalogues both the manipulations of ‘powers that be’ and the mishaps—and misreporting—of foolish war correspondents. It is reassuring to know that someone is keeping tabs on both the messengers and their masters.”—Philip Smucker, author of Al Qaeda’s Great Escape: The Military and the Media on Terror's Trail (Philip Smucker 2008-05-13)

Shooting the Messenger is a crisp, provocative history that dispels many of the myths about war reporting. Moorcraft and Taylor understand the harsh realities of covering combat and dealing with political responses to that coverage.”—Philip Seib, professor of journalism and public diplomacy, University of Southern California, and author of The Al Jazeera Effect: How the New Global Media are Reshaping Global Politics (Philip Seib 2008-05-13)

“A penetrating look at the complex issues surrounding war reporting.”—Mark Kukis, Baghdad correspondent, Time Magazine, and author of "My Heart Became Atached": The Strange Journey of John Walker Lindh (Mark Kukis 2008-05-13)

“[A]n interesting, compelling book. Highly recommended."—Choice (Choice 2008-12-12)

"Shooting the Messenger is a cracking history of war reporting and its political impact, unreservedly recommended reading for practitioners, scholars, and journalists alike."—RUSI Journal (RUSI Journal 2009-01-06)

“Will prove an invaluable title for any collection strong in either military history, military issues, or journalism studies.”—Midwest Book Review (Midwest Book Review 2009-01-21)
