POW: Susan Faludi on C-Span

C-Span's After Words program had an excellent interview with Susan Faludi about her new book, The Terror Dream. It is a gender analysis of the media representation of 9/11 and the war on terror. Much good stuff.

Most of the topics covered I knew about before (hagiography around 9/11 widows, demonization of 'Jersey Girls', Jessica Lynch) but laying it all out together makes for a powerful presentation.
