Katharine Graham, b. 1917. I found Felsenthal's biog to be very readable. She includes notes and sources, so I'm not sure what the previous reviewer means by "not well researched" since the reviewer doesn't say. Graham was a wealthy, powerful woman. I didn't much like her. She once said to a reporter who worked for her, "You mean you have to live on your salary?" Yet for all that she had, the power and the privilege, she was still a very insecure person. The Washington Post was her father's newspaper. Her husband, Phil Graham, married the boss's daughter, which is how Phil Graham became publisher of the newspaper. This biography covers a lot of recent newspaper history and is a fascinating look at the convergence of journalism and politics, particularly from about the 1960s-1980s. How did journalism get to where it is today in 2010? Books like these help to make that more understandable.
