Daniel Schorr, an institution at CBS for decades and a twenty-year mainstay of NPR, is a legend in journalism. This is the first selection of Schorr's observations on politics and American life from the years 1990 to the present--a commentary on the history of our time. Schorr's essays reveal him as a master of pithy, get-to-the-point analysis, whether he is calling the Supreme Court's 2000 decision to seat George W. Bush as president a "junta" by a "Gang of Five" or eviscerating a conservative counterpart for belittling F.D.R.'s legacy. Schorr's experience--he has covered the administrations of twelve presidents--gives him an authority and range that permeate every page--From publisher description
The idea of a free press : the Enlightenment and its unruly legacy by David A Copeland( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 501 libraries worldwide
"With the introduction of the printing press in England in 1476, a struggle over its control - and its potential for interrupting power - was joined. The written word, once the domain of the upper levels of society that controlled politics, economics, and religion, could be seen passing into the hands of anyone throughout the social strata who wished to voice opinions on any topic of interest or importance. How the advent of printing led to the idea of a free press is the story told by David A. Copeland in this book, which traces a confrontation that began with issues of religion and gradually expanded into the realm of political freedom."--BOOK JACKET
