An eye-opening look at how the top media covers world news. Explores the pack mentality that drives reporters and how it distorts what we know about global news, economics, wars, human rights and more. Vividly illustrated with incisive anecdotes, it argues that while individual reporting is at its peak, the system is less reliable than ever. Analyzes coverage of recent hot spots such as Iran, Somalia and Eastern Europe. Features interviews with media stars.

Mort Rosenblum (born 1944), is an American author, editor and journalist.

When only 17, Rosenblum left the University of Arizona in Tucson to work at the Mexico City Times and then wrote for the Caracas Daily Journal. He joined the Associated Press at Newark in 1965. His international career began in 1967, when the AP sent him to cover mercenary wars in Congo. Since then Rosenblum has run AP bureaus in Kinshasa, Lagos, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Singapore, Buenos Aires, and Paris. From 1979 to 1981 he was editor of the International Herald Tribune but later returned to AP as special correspondent, based in Paris.

Rosenblum left AP in 2004, and in 2008, launched dispatches, a British quarterly magazine with co-editor Gary Knightand publisher Dr. Simba Gill, which ceased publication after five issues. Additionally, Rosenblum is a professor of journalism at the University of Arizona, Tucson, where he teaches International Reporting.
