Summary
  • " ... a history and an indictment of the relationship between the major news media and the Reagan Administration. Based on more than 175 interviews with most of the key figures in the White House and the press, and on a comprehensive analysis of newspaper and television coverage of such stories as the Iran-Contra Affair, the invasion of Grenada, the arms talks, and Reaganomics, this book exposes one of the great scandals of recent U.S. politics -- how the press, both through government manipulation and through voluntary self-censorship, abdicated its responsibility to report on what was really going on."--Jacket
