A Dubya in the Headlights : President George W. Bush and the Media
A Dubya in the Headlights examines all eight years of the Bush presidency with a critical but non-partisan eye towards its communication policies. While Hayden highlights dilemmas from both terms, he provides an especially important perspective on media coverage of events since Hurricane Katrina. In addition to surveying traditional news outlets, this timely volume also includes an analysis of entertainment and alternative media.
