Abstract:

This study was an effort to capture Army War College student officers perceptions concerning the news media and what can be done to better our performance with them. The central hypothesis was that the Armys future leadership would perceive a problem and therefore a need for specialized media training for lieutenant colonels and colonels assigned to or occupying positions having high potential for media exposure. The total sample was tested by an attitude response survey 72 percent return. Two subsets were analyzed--those who professed to have media experience and those who stated they had none. The data was subjectively and objectively analyzed. Author
