Michael Hastings on war journalists
"I went into journalism to do journalism, not advertising. My views are critical but that shouldn’t be mistaken for hostile – I’m just not a stenographer. There is a body of work that shows how I view these issues but that was hard-earned through experience, not something I learned going to a cocktail party on fucking K Street. That’s what reporters are supposed to do, report the story." -- Michael HastingsRead about Michael Hastings and his new book on the Afghan war in Glenn Greenwald's latest.
