Craig Crawford talked about his book Attack the Messenger: How Politicians Turn You Against the Media, published by Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, Inc. The book examined efforts by politicians to make the news media the issue when the stories they report make the politicians look bad. Mr. Crawford used the clash between then Vice President George H.W. Bush and Dan Rather during the 1988 election season to illustrate his point. He also talked about Vice President Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s recent comments about the press, the media’s coverage of the build-up to the war in Iraq, and the CIA leak case. Following his remarks he answered questions from the audience. close
