Award-winning investigative reporter Borjesson (Into the Buzzsaw: Leading Journalists Expose the Myth of a Free Press) probes the minds (and hearts) of 21 of the nation's leading journalists from television, print, and radio concerning events following 9/11, including the march to war. Thoughtful questions asked during individual meetings with these men and women in 2004-05 gave reporters emotional and intellectual space for candor-or as close to it as we're likely to see. Borjesson chose veterans of the caliber of Ted Koppel (ABC), Helen Thomas (White House correspondent for Hearst Newspapers for 40 years), and Deborah Amos (NPR), as well as such men as Juan Cole, a blogger and Mideast specialist at the University of Michigan who had followed al Qaeda for years and describes how almost nobody took his observations seriously before 9/11. Each interview is substantial and followed by elaborative notes. Though the subjects presented here make this work suitable for many libraries, the degree of detail presented, as well as the length, limit suitability to libraries maintaining significant collections on the media or contemporary U.S. history.-Ari Sigal, Catawba Valley Community Coll.
