MEDIA REVIEWS

"Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath left in ruins the reputations of a mayor, a governor, and a president. However, the catastrophe also reminded Americans of the central role journalism plays in times of tragedy. Judith Sylvester s study of the journalists of Katrina tells the stories behind the stories - the stories of heroes who were also victims. This is an important book for anyone who values journalism." - George Kennedy, Professor Emeritus, Department of Newspaper Journalism, Missouri School of Journalism

"Media coverage of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita placed journalists at a difficult moral intersection. Dr. Sylvester captures their professional stories in the much needed pages of this text and provides an indispensable record of the important function of journalism in crises." - Connie Ledoux Book, Associate Dean and Associate Professor, School of Communications, Elon University
