POSC 290 Media & National Security
Cross-listed with INST 290-05. Journalists deliver the first draft of history, informing the public, policymakers, the business world and beyond. They drive public opinion, politics, policy and business at home and abroad. Their reports can help fuel debate, trigger diplomatic conflict or pressure competing sides into talking peace. But when you read "a U.S. official said," do you know the rules governing how that information was given out? Do you understand how a single news report can trigger a change in policy on Capitol Hill, or the firing of a top official at the White House, or the shifting in strategy and tactics of a multiyear, multibillion-dollar war? Explore case studies from Vietnam to Kosovo, Iraq to Afghanistan, WikiLeaks to the NSA's Edward Snowden, and meet some of those delivering the news.
