Second front

In chapter, one of second front Macarthur speaks of many different topics the one topic that stands out for me is the pool system. It was very interesting how only a certain number of reporters would go into the field, gather information, and bring it back to the rest of the reporters. This probably did save a lot of money and injuries for the reporters and the networks but it seems to me that this not a good way to get stories. All the reporters are reporting the same stories. Therefore, the public itself is not getting different aspect of the news from different people but the same news from every one. So if one person has the wrong information so does everyone else. It is a horrible way to get the news to the public.
