Michael GetlerSeth Mnookin, a former media reporter for Newsweek, has done something that's hard to do: He has written a book about journalism that is hard to put down. Hard News reads like a thriller, a fast-paced novel unfolding inside a newspaper long viewed as the gold standard of American journalism. It has a whiff of what passes for tragedy these days: a great newspaper and a talented editor seemingly at the top of his game, a brash and expansive new heir to the Sulzberger family publishing dynasty, lots of big egos and personalities, all suddenly and almost unbelievably brought to heel by the actions of a bright, engaging but seriously flawed young reporter.
