Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The book's title expresses how this veteran TV newsman sees his job: unrelenting, skeptical questioning to find out what is really going on. Using an entertaining anecdotal style, Donaldson relates how he became a newsman and explores what he sees as the ends served by his work. He defends his pointed questioning of Presidents Carter and Reagan and argues that the presshimself includedis often too respectful of authority and not sufficiently challenging in performace of its oversight role. He views TV as a superior news medium because it permits viewers to see and hear events and judge situations for themselves. Offering behind-the-scenes insights into the lives of notables in government and in the press, this is recommended for the general reader as well as the news media specialist. BOMC alternate. Mark K. Jones, Cincinnati, Ohio
