About the book:

Today, in the post-Watergate ear, we realize anew the function that a free and courageous press has in safe-guarding our rights and protecting us from governmental big lies. But what many of us do not realize are the forces actively at work to sap the strength of the press, and to cripple its ability to investigate, observe, and report. No one was more keenly aware of both the powers and the perils of the press in this country than A. J. Liebling. No one has ever written a book that shows journalism and how it operates in a more revealing light. A. J. Liebling's THE PRESS is a true classic - but not the kind to rest comfortably on the shelves. It is a scintillating, sardonic, frequently hilarious, and always superbly written instrument of understanding that demands to be used today more than ever before.
