Summary
Truth and Duty is Mapes' account of the often-surreal, always-harrowing fallout she experienced for raising questions about a powerful sitting president. It goes back to examine Bush's political roots as governor of Texas and answers questions about the solidity of the documents at the heart of the National Guard story as well as where they came from. Her book takes readers not just into the newsroom where coverage decisions are made, but out into the field where the real reporting is done. TRUTH AND DUTY is peopled with a colorful and vigorous cast of characters--from Karl Rove to Sumner Redstone, Bill Burkett to Dan Rather--and moves from small-town rural Texas to the deserts of Afghanistan, from hurricane season in Florida to CBS corporate headquarters Black Rock in New York City
Summary
The producer at the heart of the 60 Minutes/George Bush National Guard controversy presents a fascinating elucidation of how the public's right to know is being jeopardized by a corrupt alliance among politicians, news organizations, and corporate America. Reprint. 30,000 first printing
