Mainstream news media, an objective approach, and the March to war in iraq

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 21 (1):4 – 29 (2006)
_ Americans were forced to decide during an 18-month period of intense uncertainty whether to invade Iraq as part of the war against terrorism. This article reports compelling evidence that mainstream media between September 2001 and March 2003 failed in their primary responsibility: to provide sound news and commentary on which Americans could base critical decisions about war and peace. One reason is that journalists did not use an objective approach-in part because it had been discredited by media professionals and critics who advocated more activist approaches.
