While recognizing that media can have a powerful effect on process, Warren Strobel carefully and effectively debunks the 'media makes policy' myth in this book--James A. Baker, III, 61st U.S. Secretary of State
A revealing read. Strobel, himself a practitioner of daily 'newsbreak' journalism in the print medium, peels away the veneer of magic around today's global newscasting and offers a glimpse of how policymaking and instant journalism mix.Insiders in the policy and media establishments will see themselves in "Late-Breaking Foreign Policy." Consumers of news and policy will never watch 'live' television journalism the same way again.--Ralph Begleiter, CNN
A useful exploration of the issues raised when CNN intersects with international diplomacy. Strobel's case studies from the post-Cold War crises in Somalia and Haiti are especially instructive. In short, an important contribution to the field.--Johanna Neuman, foreign editor of USA Today and author of Lights, Camera, War: Is Media Technology Driving International Politics?
The very fluidity and uncertainty of our times make Warren Strobel's thoughtful, perceptive study an important book for policymakers, reporters, and students of foreign policy--Ken Bode, moderator of Washington Week in Review and the John Hughes Professor of Politics and the Media, DePauw University
