So Wrong for So Long Summary


So Wrong for So Long: How the Press, the Pundits - and the President - Failed in Iraq by Greg Mitchell

It is often said that a free press is the watchdog of democracy, insuring that the conduct of our leaders is examined with a critical eye. This makes Greg Mitchell the watchdog of watchdogs, as tracking the performance of the media is his priority at Editor and Publisher, the influential magazine of the newspaper industry. In 2003, Greg Mitchell was one of the few journalists to question the grounds for the war in Iraq. Today, Mitchell looks ahead at lessons for the future with an original introduction and connecting material that updates and unifies his original essays and scrutiny of America's media coverage. With more than 75 of Mitchell's columns, this book provides a unique history of the conflict, from the hyped "weapons of mass destruction" stories to the "surge."

So Wrong for So Long Reviews


"The profound failure of the American press with regard to the Iraq War may very well be the most significant political story of this generation. Greg Mitchell has established himself as one of our country's most perceptive media critics, and here he provides invaluable insight into how massive journalistic failures enabled the greatest strategic disaster in the nation's history."--Glenn Greenwald, Salon.com columnist and author of "A Tragic Legacy and How Would a Patriot Act? """ "Anyone who cares about the integrity of the American media should read this book. Greg Mitchell asks tough questions about the Iraq war that should have been asked long ago, in a poignant, patriotic, and thoughtful dissection of our war in Iraq. Mitchell names names and places blame on those who've blundered. Examining the most complex issue of our time, he connects the dots like no one else has."--Paul Rieckhoff, Executive Director, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and author of "Chasing Ghosts"
