The two speakers debated the lessons for the future for the media that have come from the recent Persian Gulf war and other world conflicts. They talked about the role the press has historically played in covering and even becoming directly involved in major conflicts and wars. Specific topics included the responsibility of the networks, live coverage, and censorship. Based on this discussion, they each took a different stand on the efficacy, ethics, and responsibility of the media’s role in political struggles. Some technical difficulties occurred in the C-SPAN taping of this program. close
