Jeff Gannon Book Selected for National Press Club Book Fair

'The Great Media War: A Battlefield Report' Featured At 30th Annual Event

Contact: Jeff Gannon, 202-409-3850

WASHINGTON, October 16 /Standard Newswire/ -- A book by former White House correspondent Jeff Gannon, "The Great Media War: A Battlefield Report" will be among those featured at the 2007 National Press Club Book Fair. The National Press Club is the world's most prestigious association of professional journalists. The November 1st event is the 30th annual book fair and benefits the Eric Friedheim Journalism Library at the National Press Club.

Jeff Gannon, the first exclusively online reporter to cover the White House on a regular basis is considered a New Media pioneer. He notes that his daily readership of more than half a million topped the circulation of most newspapers, despite reporting for a small news outlet. Gannon points out that since his tenure at the White House nearly every news entity has launched an online presence.

Gannon chronicles his two years as a member of the White House Press Corps and reveals his role in the Valerie Plame affair and the scandal that toppled Dan Rather from the CBS News anchor chair as well as the historic defeat of Sen. Tom Daschle in 2004. He also offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the White House Press Corps, led by the legendary Helen Thomas.

Gannon weighs in on the left versus right, liberal versus conservative debate that he dubs "The Great Media War". He contends that the struggles between those opposing ideologies play themselves out on radio, television and in the newspapers every day and determine how news is reported. Gannon also sees the Internet as the next front in The Great Media War and discusses its effect on the future of journalism and news reporting.

Gannon writes about his experiences after asking one of the most famous questions ever posed by a reporter to a president. He explains "The Question" and speculates as to the reasons the reaction to it caused a nationwide sensation.

Gannon has something to say about nearly every member of the Beltway media establishment as well as many Washington politicians. His book is replete with evidence of pervasive liberal media bias well beyond the point of questioning whether or not it exists. Gannon proves the point with words directly taken from the lips of his colleagues.
