Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] revealing portrait of American television’s most famous and successful news show...perhaps the book’s most important contribution comes in ratifying the essential role of skilled, tenacious journalism in maintaining a democracy." --Associated Press

"The book details story after story of [Rosen's] efforts to get people to tell him things, and then say those same things on camera...[Mike] Wallace might have been the Picasso of interviewers, but his producer had to be the master of landing them in the first place...the essence of the book involves the stories behind those stories." --Washington Post

--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
