Instruments of War

Friday, October 10, 2008


As reported in The New York Times last year, CNN, MSNBC, NPR and others turned, again and again, to military analysts – retired members of the armed forces hired by broadcast and cable networks – for their supposed expertise on the war. Only, it turns out, the analysts were often coached by the Pentagon in what the Times said were “hundreds of private briefings.” As the FCC launches an investigation, we thought we'd replay our interview with Maj. Robert Bevelacqua, a former Green Beret and Fox News contributor through 2005.
