Abstract:

The contemporary media environment continues to change at an ever-accelerating pace, faster than most could have imagined just 10 years ago. this acceleration has significant implications for todays media outlets and the military. New media is a case in point. It has been described as a combustible mix of 247 cable news, call-in radio and television programs, Internet bloggers and online websites, cellphones and iPods. New medias meteoric rise and increasing pervasiveness dictate fresh terms for the culture of media engagement. With easy access, enormous reach, and breadth, this upstart has flexed sufficient muscle during recent conflicts to alter or transform our traditional view of information and its impact on populations and military operation.
