Abstract

Well-known examples of how media owners manipulated coverage of the war during the first six months include Cumulus Media's edict that its radio stations broadcast only pro-war stories; the firing of Peter Arnett by NBC because of one of his broadcasts from Iraq; and MSNBC's cancelling of the Phil Donahue Show because the network believed the show would be a conduit for the liberal anti-war agenda. Lesser-known examples of ownership interference in war-related coverage have occurred throughout the United States at smaller media outlets, where reporters have been fired, demoted, or otherwise reprimanded for participating in anti-war activities on their own time (FAIR 2003).
