What People are Saying About This

Marvin Kalb

Diamond is one of the shrewdest critics of the press. His analysis and case studies are well-written and insightful. Any student of the emerging field of press/politics will gain much from The Media Show.

Ralph Whitehead

Few observers of media instututions in the United States are as well-placed as Edwin diamond. His geographic base is New York City. His home venue, New York Magazine is read by a disproportionate number of media decision makers. Consequently, he commands a rare degree of access to his subject matter, and his reports, once printed, enjoy an unusually influential audience. In The Media Show, Diamond covers a remarkably eventful period in the history of American news gathering. Diamond was able to engage much of teh ferment in those years, and his dispatches are of considerable value to those who follow the evolution of American journalism. Well-suited for the informed layperson, this book is also a valuable record for sophisticated students of the media culture.

David M. Rubin

With this collection, Ed Diamond maintains his position as America's sassiest, most accessible media critics.
