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.

A tough, perceptive, and eminently readable account...absolutely essential. -- Charles Peters * Washington Monthly * This sets the sad story institution that has grown in power and yet lost its moorings in a riptide of hucksterism and handlers. -- Howard Fineman * Newsweek * Shogan has got it right. This book is a wake-up call for journalists everywhere. -- Sam Donaldson, ABC News The best book I've read on how political reporters think and work since Tomothy Crouse's The Boys on the Bus. Actually, I wish Shogan had not written cuts a little too close to the bone. -- Richard Reeves, author of President Kennedy: Profile of Power If there is such a thing as a good book about 'bad news,' this is it. -- David S. Broder * The Review of Higher Education *
