Editorial Reviews

Review


"Berry has broken new ground for the insider analysis of important journalism. Typically, books about modern reporting tend either to be triumphalist (crusading newshounds bring down bad guys) or jeremiads (how the news system has collapsed). But Berry portrays Pulitzer Prize reporting teams as human beings, as well as craftspeople. More important, he shows the shades of gray and the complexities that his protagonists try to translate into black-and-white print and that often stymie 'solutions' to the scandals uncovered. We get an inside look at the many political, emotional, and historical factors that produced reporting that saved lives, but also split a community. This is a book that should be read by every journalist as well as everyone in the academy who thinks of him or herself as a critic of journalism."--David D. Perlmutter, William Allen White School of Journalism & Mass Communications, University of Kansas

Format: Paperback
This book is a great read, even if you are not a journalist. The investigative projects discussed throughout are engaging, and Steve's interviewing is phenomenal. Steve is a brilliant man and he obviously has a wealth of knowledge and experience that people around him should absorb. This is a must read book for anyone interested in investigative journalism!
