Summary
"Focusing on the post-9/11 period, this masterful collection beginning with a pull-no-punches interview with ABC: News veteran Ted Koppel and ending with a scaring phone interview with Knight Ridder's Tom Lasserter from Baghdad unveils a journalistic environment that rivals any long-running soap opera on TV. Filled with astonishing personal stories, conflict, and drama, Feet to the Fire gives readers the rare opportunity to walk a mile in the shoes of powerful journalists and news executives and experience their highly stressful environments." "With each new and revealing interview, Borjesson gathers devastating details from national security and intelligence reporters, White House journalists, Middle East experts, war correspondents, and others. Like pieces of a terrible puzzle, these conversations combine to provide a hair-raising view of the mechanisms by which the truth has been manufactured post 9/11. The assembled puzzle also shows how ordinary Americans have played key roles along with the press and the government in perpetuating the deception. Feet to the Fire is an unprecedented and deeply disturbing insider's report on how diverse factious within our society have collaborated and clashed to bring about profound change."--Jacket
