This study reviews how U.S. military-media relationships have developed throughout history. It examines how technological improvements in communications equipment led to the realization by the military that in order to ensure security for operations and safety for soldiers, the media would have to have some restrictions placed on them. Although the paper covers this relationship throughout history, it focuses on the past eight years. During this period, Grenada, Panama, and the Gulf crisis greatly influenced how the military dealt with the media. The paper points out the military strengths and weaknesses in dealing with the media. It concludes with recommendations on how the military should handle the media in future conflicts.
