ABSTRACT
The article discusses the broadcasting of Iraqi war news for the U.S. public following the broadcast of the Iraqi war on all television channels across the country.The U.S. people are faced with several problems because of this. When the TV on the desk at work has the war news on all day, it became difficult to watch the war news even after going back home. The overload of spot news, the Web camera views of soldiers and sandstorms cries out for the perspective are common sites on the television.A personal escape hatch in the week preceding March 31, 2003, was into a paperback copy of 'Kelly's Martyr's Day: A Chronicle of a Small War,' about Iraq and the Gulf War. The descriptions of the Baghdad, Iraq hotels and the calm before the missiles struck and of the good-humored Iraqis he encounters, take one even further inside the city than CNN's amazing Earthviewer.com satellite close-ups. The Lifetime Television research chief and TV historian Tim Brooks pointed out that network news means “cable” these days, a big change from 1991, at least until CNN broke through.
