Abstract:

"Leonard Downie, Jr. and Robert G. Kaiser - both reporters and editors at the Washington Post for nearly four decades - take us inside the American news media to reveal why the journalism we watch and read is so often so bad, and to explain what can be done about it." "They demonstrate how the media's preoccupation with celebrities, entertainment, sensationalism and profits can make a mockery of news. They remind us of the value of serious journalism with inside accounts of how great stories were reported and written - a New York Times investigation of Scientology and the IRS, and a Washington Post expose of police excesses. They recount a tense debate inside their own newsroom about whether to publicize a presidential candidate's long-ago love affair."--Jacket.
