Bad News

Where the Press Goes Wrong in the Making of the President

Book Description

Prize-winning reporter Robert Shogan draws on the lessons of nine presidential elections to show where the press goes wrong in the making of the president. The media, Mr. Shogan argues, now play the role of enablers. Without fully realizing it, they allow and abet the abuse of the political process by the candidates and their handlers. Shogan has got it right....Bad News is a wake-up call for journalists everywhere. —Sam Donaldson, ABC News. If there is such a thing as a good book about 'bad news,' this is it. —David S. Broder, Washington Post
