Get Him Rewrite -

Edward Kosner writes a terrific review
of Getting It Wrong by W Joseph Campbell . . .

about the power of the Press to mythologize raw news into "golden legends." The fabled figures of William Randolph Hearst, Orson Welles, Edward R Murrow and more are included.

"Journalism can't help itself - it loves and perpetuates its sacred legends of evil power-mongers, courageous underdogs, dread plagues and human folly."
