Tumber, H. (2014). Journalism and the Invasion of Grenada 30 Years On: A Retrospective. Round Table, 103(1), pp. 55-64. doi: 10.1080/00358533.2013.874163


The 1983 United States-led invasion of Grenada represents an important case study of journalism in the front line because it marked a changing point in the relationship between journalists and the US administration. The exclusion of news organisations and independent journalists at the time can be conceived of as a test in trying new forms of information management. The tensions experienced between journalists, government and military officers signalled the need to design alternative solutions to the problem of information coverage in wartime.
