Bill Resnick interviews Jeff Cohen comparing U. S. media coverage of the Russian invasion of Ukraine to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. For example, the suffering and deaths of Ukrainians are shown in heartbreaking detail, while in Iraq, as Cohen witnessed himself as a war reporter, civilian deaths were largely ignored and undercounted through the years. Cohen was founding director of the Park Center for independent Media at Ithaca College. He is the author of Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media.
