Adler, Renata. Reckless Disregard. New York: Knopf, 1986.

This book concerns two pieces of litigation, Westmoreland v. CBS et al. and Sharon v. Time, involving accusations of libel on the part of the media. The Westmoreland case grew out of a CBS documentary based on the work of former CIA analyst Sam Adams who had argued for a conspiracy within the U.S. government to manipulate Order of Battle estimates in the Vietnam war.

Wirtz, I&NS 2.4, concludes that Reckless Disregard offers "a convincing case against the conspiracy theory employed by CBS in its intelligence post-mortem." Nonetheless, Adler has an "incomplete understanding of what intelligence entails," and misses the point that intelligence analysts are more willing than their media counterparts to admit to the possibility of error.
