Summary
In a world of blow-dried anchors, Linda Ellerbee is that rare creature- a literate, sophisticated, breezily irreverent journalist who treats the viewer as if he were not an idiot. She relays some very fine stories, about both what has gone right in her fourteen-year career as local reporter in Houston and New York, NBC correspondent, Today show essayist, and coanchor for the much-praised and awarded Weekend and NBC News Overnight. In the process, she offers not only a truly hilarious and telling memoir, but the strongest, most candid book on television and television news ever written, a no-holds-barred inside examination of how TV news manufactures the "product", why the typical viewer is held in disdain, why stations like to hire "Twinkies" (male and female), how so many newscasts have turned into the Sermon on the Mount or the Gospel according to cute- why we get the news we get and why it isn't the news we deserve. -- from Book Jacket
