Hosted by

President Obama will address the nation tomorrow night to explain his new strategy for dealing with the Islamic State. Today’s Washington Post finds a big increase in public support for airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, but confidence in the President has not increased. Greg Mitchell was the longtime editor of Editor and Publisher magazine, which covers the newspaper industry. He’s now a blogger and author of books including So Wrong for So Long: How the Press, the Pundits—and the President—Failed on Iraq.
