If you like most of us receive your news primarily through television you need to read Liz Trotta's book Fighting for Air. She was present at the transformation of TV news from a reportorial medium to an editorializing, prostelytizing one. Trotta too often was a lone voice for truth in reporting amidst a wilderness of ratings, liberal bias and pretty talking heads. She recounts the ups and downs of a traumatic career that took her from battleground to political campaign and back again. Few incidents of significance occurred in the two plus decades that Liz has covered the world that she has not seen and reported on. Her greatest contribution - in this era of finally revealing the shallow nature of TV news - is that some people are able to look beyone the surface and see what is really important.
This book is a must-read for all concerned with current affairs and with how the media deliberately attempts to shape your thinking. Buy it and send it to a friend after you finish. Thanks to Liz Trotta for being ahead of her time.

Liz Trotta: On why we spend too much on sexual assault prevention in the military and on "women in the military GETTING RAPED TOO MUCH." Her brilliant observation: "The job of the U.S. military is to defend the people not serving - not to protect the people serving". Obviously Trotta never served...too bad.

Elizabeth Trotta has spent her entire career in television news. You will not find a better qualified opinion of the current state of that media. She has exposed CBS and NBC (where she has plenty of personal experience) for what they have become. Since she has "blown the whistle" on the mass media, they have attacked her non stop. I also give her an A for putting up with the constant onslaught of criticism for having done so. She tells it like it is.

Trotta was one of the first female war correspondents on television. This book is a must read for her Vietnam reflections as well as her story of what it was like to be a woman in the network "boys club".

At first read, this was an interesting account of history, represented by a front line witness.

All the more reason I was surprised to see and hear Liz, in what was hopefully a momentary lapse of reason on Fox news, express a hope that a US Presidential candidate be assisinated. To see and hear this esteemed graduate of Columbia's Graduate Schoold Journalism and award winning author giggle at her suggestion a US presidential candidate be killed, murdered with intent and political purpose, was unexpected. Liz spoke as though, almost suggesting, both the historic terrorist Osama Bin Laden and Christian US Senator and Presidential candidate Barack Obama be casually disposed of with some ignorant measure of equal consideration simply because their names are similar.

What opinion is one to draw of this person's intellect and credibility when irresponsible, cavalier, historically ignorant and irresponsible comments are shared with ease? Dare I say she sounds more like a member of the White Power Movements than a Graduate of Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism.

Though I once respected Liz's words and accomplishmnets, I cannot help but apply a new filter over my interpretation of her words and apparent ignorance. Fair or unfair, in a single, highly visible moment this author has place a lifetime of work and accomplishments in question. Read her books, but view her as a suspiciously unreliable and ignorant source.
Gee, I think Ms. Trotta would like to be given credit for the assassination of an American senator, eh? She would have felt right at home in Nazi Germany, where calling for the death of a political opponent was completely acceptable.

Why are we stuck with these monsters? How can we get them to climb back under their rocks???
