I was a fan of Glenn Greenwald way he got his own blog at Salon and wrote two bestselling books (a third is coming out in a couple of weeks). He gave me a blurb for my book and wrote about it again at his blog a few days ago. Here's what he wrote plus a link to a podcast for Salon that we did (sound quality is shaky at first but improves greatly): "Speaking of crucial political topics that have received virtually no attention from the establishment press, Greg Mitchell, the editor of Editor & Publisher, has just released a new book covering one of the most significant and under-reported topics of the last decade: the profound failures of the establishment press with regard to the Iraq War. Mitchell's book -- So Wrong for So Long: How the Press, the Pundits and the President Failed on Iraq -- is one of the very few historical accounts of the media's role in actively enabling both the invasion and the tidal wave of government falsehoods regarding the subsequent occupation. I spoke with Mitchell regarding several of the topics in his book, which can be heard here."
