Peter Braestrup

Peter Braestrup (June 8, 1929 – August 10, 1997) was a correspondent for ''The New York Times'' and ''The Washington Post'', founding editor of the ''Wilson Quarterly'', and later senior editor and director of communications for the Library of Congress. Retiring from journalism in 1973, he founded the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars' ''Wilson Quarterly'', and in 1989 moved to the Library of Congress.

Braestrup's 1977 Freedom House-sponsored book, the two-volume ''Big Story'', criticized US media coverage of the Vietnam War's 1968 Tet Offensive. The book, which argued that the media coverage of the offensive was excessively negative and helped lose the war, "is regularly cited by historians, without qualification, as the standard work on media reporting of the Tet offensive".
