Media Cleansing: Dirty Reporting

Journalism and Tragedy in Yugoslavia

by Peter Brock

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Five years in exhaustive preparation and writing, Media Cleansing: Dirty Reporting, is the blockbuster book by American journalist Peter Brock that exposes the shocking record of the Western media's war reporting in the breakup of Yugoslavia and their collusion that deceived the world during the wars in Bosnia and Kosovo.
Description
Here are the documented contradictions, the profession-wide errors, admissions, confessions and suppression by the reporters and correspondents who were co-participants in the deliberate dismantling of a sovereign nation, inflaming governments and the United Nations, politicians and manipulating public opinion. This is the book that was feared by the mainstream American and European press since 1993 when "Dateline Yugoslavia: The Partisan Press" was published by this author in Foreign Policy, the journal of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (Washington, D.C.). It reverberated throughout Western capitals, shattering the media's self-illusions about impartiality, objectivity, fairness and truth and provoked an unprecedented reaction and backlash from media organizations, journalistic societies, academics and government leaders, leading to street protests in Europe, and even a "press trial"!
About the author
Mr. Brock's career as a newspaper journalist for more than 30 years is highlighted by 17 professional awards - including being named a finalist for the 1989 Pulitzer Prize competition in Public Service. Recognized as a political and environmental writer and investigative reporter, Mr. Brock holds the Southern Journalism Award for Investigative Reporting (Duke University), the Thomas L. Stokes Award for Environmental Reporting of the Washington Journalism Center, and other distinctions. He has widely traveled the Balkans, Western Central Europe, the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and other regions since 1976. A specialist in the role of the Western media in the Balkan wars, Mr. Brock's controversial articles and reports were reprinted in major newspapers worldwide. He appeared on nationally-televised panel discussions that focused on the Yugoslav wars, and he was interviewed by numerous domestic and international newspapers, television and radio. He began his newspaper career at The Philadelphia Inquirer, served for 20 years with The El Paso (Texas) Herald-Post, and wrote/reported/edited for newspapers in New Mexico, Colorado and Washington, D.C.
