Summary:
It's the nature of journalism to occupy itself with the bad news in life, the fires and traffic jams, depressions and wars. It's the nature of some journalists to turn a sharp eye and a biting pen on the follies and vanities of everyday life.

Abstract:

It's the nature of journalism to occupy itself with the bad news in life, the fires and traffic jams, depressions and wars. It's the nature of some journalists to turn a sharp eye and a biting pen on the follies and vanities of everyday life. It's all the more surprising, then, to hear one of those acidic journalists tell us, in this program with Bill Moyers, that there has never been a greater moment to be alive or a greater country to be alive in. Tom Wolfe helped invent the New Journalism in the 1960s and became the guru of popular culture. His beat ever since has been scrutinizing America's obsessions, while his books and essays have become icons of our times.
