Description - The Media and the War on Terrorism by Stephen Hess

This collection of candid conversations between journalists and federal officials aims to capture the tensions between the press and the government during wartime. Begun in late 2001, shortly after the US launched its ground campaign in Afghanistan, the discussions engage a number of complex issues, including military censorship and the difficulties of maintaining security in an era of satellite technology.
