My 2008 Book on Iraq and the Media


Here's how to easily get So Wrong for So Long, which covers over five years of Iraq and the media (from Judy Miller to Stephen Colbert) and features a preface by Bruce Springsteen with an introduction by Joseph L. Galloway.

You can do it via the links at the left under the book cover (clicking on the cover won't work), which take you to Amazon or Barnes and Noble, or go to Powell's online or order it at bookstores. I'm grateful for the tremendous response so far, ranging from appearances on the Bill Moyers Journal, Jim Lehrer NewsHour, NPR, Keith Olbermann, and Democracy Now! to great reviews in the L.A. Times and Vanity Fair. It has been a featured selection at Talking Points Memo and FireDogLake, excerpted at Salon, with articles from it at Mother Jones, Huff Post, DailyKos, and a dozen other leading sites. The blurbs for the book follow. Thanks again for your support.

"Greg Mitchell has given us a razor-sharp critique of how the media and the government connived in one of the great blunders of American foreign policy. Every aspiring journalist, every veteran, every pundit—and every citizen who cares about the difference between illusion and reality, propaganda and the truth, and looks to the press to help keep them separate—should read this book. Twice."— Bill Moyers

"With the tragic war in Iraq dragging on, and the drumbeat for new conflicts growing louder, this is more than a five-year history of the biggest foreign policy debacle of our times—it's a cautionary tale that is as relevant as this morning's headlines. Read it and weep; read it and get enraged; read it and make sure it doesn't happen again."— Arianna Huffington

“The profound failure of the American press with regard to the Iraq War may very well be the most significant political story of this generation. Greg Mitchell has established himself as one of our country's most perceptive media critics, and here he provides invaluable insight into how massive journalistic failures enabled the greatest strategic disaster in the nation's history.”— Glenn Greenwald, Salon.com writer and author of A Tragic Legacy and How Would a Patriot Act?

"Anyone who cares about the integrity of the American media should read this book. Greg Mitchell asks tough questions about the Iraq war that should have been asked long ago, in a poignant, patriotic, and thoughtful dissection of our war in Iraq. Mitchell names names and places blame on those who’ve blundered. Examining the most complex issue of our time, he connects the dots like no one else has."— Paul Rieckhoff, Executive Director, Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America and author of Chasing Ghosts
