Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Fedler (journalism, U. of Central Florida) recounts some of the most charming media hoaxes from the beginning of mass media to the late 20th century, many perpetrated by then-journalists who went on to fame in media or literary careers--including, Franklin, Poe, Twain, and De Quille. Ends with a gloomy report of the new ethics--hoaxers risk their jobs (unless, of course, they already write for the tabloids). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
