Confessions of a Hawkish Hack: The Media and the War on Terror

Jun 12, 2006

Much of the discourse on the war on terror has sacrificed historical perspective for an often partisan focus on the day-by-day flow of events. Confessions of a Hawkish Hack: the Media and the War on Terror is Matthew D’Ancona’s critique of such short-termism. In it, he outlines his own interpretation of the attacks of 9/11 and the media’s coverage of events since then. Above all, he urges the West to show greater patience and stamina in a conflict that is likely to last for decades and may never have a clear end point.
