MEDIA REVIEWS

In They Didn't Put that On the Huntley-Brinkley! newspaperman Hunter James introduces some of the famous and the unknown figures of the civil rights movement. James employs perception, humor, and experience to look at the South of the sixties and make its tensions and battles understandable.

--Journal of Southern History

Newspaper people fancy themselves as writing the first drafts of history. James, with the benefit of thirty years of hindsight and reflection, has produced a damn fine second draft.

--Winston-Salem Journal

You might as well go out and buy a copy of Hunter James' They Didn't Put That on the Huntley-Brinkley! because it is destined for classic status.

--Nashville Banner

James himself is central to the book, though he doesn't dominate it. That, taken with everything else, represents a solid accomplishment, one which, hopefully, will attract a generation of readers too young to remember the history subtly portrayed here.

--Anniston Star
