About the Author

Kristina Borjesson is an Emmy and Murrow Award-winning investigative reporter, who has worked for CBS and CNN.


""In [this] engrossing anthology of interviews with journalists, the Emmy-winning investigative reporter takes on what she views as the profession's loss of nerve...It's an alarming collection that raises a multitude of disconcerting questions about the state of the news media--and a paucity of answers....An unabashed critic of the war [with Iraq], Borjesson sets her sights on the media during its run-up. What she finds is an institution that failed in its duty to question officialdom, separate truth from lies and duly inform the public...compelling reading in the current context, as each new and dismal dispatch from Iraq gives the book an ominous frisson...Borjesson has performed a valuable service by holding the media's feet to the fire. Perhaps it's time someone did the same to the American public." - Cleveland Plain Dealer "Borjesson goes straight to the sources--21 of war journalism's heavy hitters. Feet to the Fire...is an exhaustive collective critique--by the likes of Walter Pincus, Ted Koppel, Ron Suskind, Anthony Shadid, and Chris Hedges--of the way American media covered recent U.S. involvement in the Middle East." - Editor & Publisher "Thoughtful questions asked during individual meetings...gave reporters emotional and intellectual space for candor - or as close to it as we're likely to see.... Each interview is substantial and followed by elaborative notes." - Library Journal "Full of such insightful commentary." - Publishers Weekly
