MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hallock (journalism, Point Park U., Pittsburgh, PA) has some 30 years of experience in the newspaper business as an editor and writer. Exploring American journalism from 1950 to 2000, he examines the work of ten giants of print, broadcast, and wire service journalism, focusing on his/her work over the course of a single decade and the journalist's reflections on that era: Anthony Lewis and Helen Thomas (1950s), Morley Safer and Earl Caldwell (1960s), Ben Bradlee and Georgie Anne Geyer (1970s), Juan Williams and Ellen Goodman (1980s), and David Broder and Judy Woodruff (1990s). Combining information from interviews with the journalists conducted by the author, archival research, memoirs, and critical studies, the text is organized into chronological chapters forming a decade-by-decade history of American journalism - and the country as a whole - during the second half of the 20th century." - Reference & Research Book News
"...eye-opening and fresh...The book's voices of optimism, coupled with a healthy dose of realism, should resonate with college instructors and their students. - Journalism History
