Tracking a Meme. Reality vs. spin in the war in Afghanistan

admin < 1 min

Columbia Journalism Review, 21 October 2010
Joshua Foust on military operations and media spin: “the military is, literally, the only group inside or outside of Afghanistan that sees hope and progress in the war”, and “This disconnect between military spin and ground reality is not only dangerous, it is insulting: Americans can handle the truth about the war their government is fighting. Whitewashing the real challenges and problems we face can only make us worse off”.
