Where did Tommy Franks call the news media the "fourth front"?

Help me find the primary source for Tommy Franks' assertion that the press represented the "fourth front" in the Iraq war.

A Google search shows that the "fourth front" assertion is quoted in many places, but the most concise source I've been able to get is that it came from a New Yorker article in 2003. Searching the New Yorker archives didn't seem to help, but it's possible I goofed.
A book called Who Benefits From Global Violence and War
provides a citation, but the relevant endnote is not available in the Google books preview.
Can someone craftier than me can find the primary source?
