For decades, Walter Cronkite was known as "the most trusted man in America." Millions across the nation welcomed him into their homes, first as a print reporter for the United Press on the front lines of World War II, and later, in the emerging medium of television, as a host of numerous documentary programs and as anchor of the CBS Evening News, from 1962 until his retirement in 1981. Yet this very public figure, undoubtedly the twentieth century's most revered journalist, was a remarkably private man; few know the full story of his life. Drawing on unprecedented access to Cronkite's priva... View more info

The implications are personal and far-reaching at the same time. View more info

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 wi...

This second and concluding volume of the great American novelist Theodore Dreiser's autobiography offers a compelling insider's view of the rough-and-tumble milieu of turn-of-the-century popular journalism, in what Dreiser himself calls "a period of orgy and crime". Following Dawn, Dreiser's candid account of his raw youth from 1871-1890 (reissued by Black Sparrow in 1998), Newspaper Days chronicles the would-be literary man's apprenticeship as reporter, travelling correspondent, drama editor and staff feature writer for papers in Chicago, St. Louis, Pittsburgh and New York from 1890-1899.R...

Originally published in 1975, Elizabeth Drew's "Washington Journal" was the book that best captured the extraordinary upheaval of America in the Watergate years. The book that established Drew's reputation as one of the shrewdest and sharpest writers on American politics, "Washington Journal "took in the emerging scandal with tremendous clarity and force. Unfolding over the course of a single year, from September 1973 to August 1974, "Washington Journal "is the record of the near-dissolution of a nation's political conscience--told from within.

Across America, newspapers that have defined their cities for over a century are rapidly failing, their circulations plummeting even as opinion-soaked web outlets like the "Huffington Post" thrive. Meanwhile, nightly news programs shock viewers with stories of horrific crime and celebrity scandal, while the smug sarcasm and shouting of pundits like Glenn Beck and Keith Olbermann dominate cable television. Is it any wonder that young people are turning away from the news entirely, trusting comedians like Jon Stewart as their primary source of information on current events? In the face of...

Popular Front columnist and New Deal propagandist. Fearless opponent of McCarthyism and feared scourge of official liars. Enterprising, independent reporter and avid amateur classicist. As D.D. Guttenplan puts it in his compelling book, I.F. Stone did what few in his profession could--he always thought for himself. America's most celebrated investigative journalist himself remains something of a mystery, however. Born Isidor Feinstein in Philadelphia, raised in rural New Jersey, by the age of 25 this college drop-out was already an influential newsman, and enjoying extraordinary access to k... View more info
