Abstract:

"My Times: A Memoir of Dissent is the first book to take a hard look at the way news is made at "the newspaper of record." John L. Hess worked at The New York Times for twenty-four years, as editor, rewrite man, foreign correspondent, feature writer, investigative reporter, and food critic. Here he attacks the myth of objective journalism and criticizes the Times for propagating it. Hess gives example after example of news not covered, miscovered, and covered up by reporters and editors working under pressure to produce noncontroversial copy. The Times, Hess writes, is a battlefield, where, indeed, the public interest is locked in daily struggle with the interests of the powerful."--BOOK JACKET.
