Robertson Quoted on Iraq War

Linda Robertson, professor of rhetoric, was quoted in the April 20 Democrat and Chronicle story “Library exhibit features wartime journalism.” An exhibit of books, Internet stories and newspaper clippings focused on war journalism is on display at the Monroe Avenue branch of the Rochester Public Library. The Iraq war was more dangerous for journalists than the 1991 war, said Robertson. “It was much more of a ground war. The Persian Gulf War involved reducing the opposing forces to the point of surrender or retreat (by air attacks), before our armor even started to move.”
