>broadcast media to shape American public opinion about the "War in
>Iraq." Interviews with composers (Peter Fish, Michael Karp) and
>network executives (CBS, NBC, Fox) reveal how the "soundtracks for
>war" had been commissioned and composed (before 19 March 2003) not
>only to promote a station's war coverage, but also to sell the
