    This is an excellent example of writing as well as presenting a topic. I came to understand that the so called journalism that focuses on drama and boobs we are used to seeing today is a watered down version of a badass reporting that aimed to present facts and change the world. Who would've known.While while detailed account of how's and why's, the book reads fresh even though some of its examples come from 1889. It's fun to read that the author sees American journalists as ones having more integrity than those from Great Britain. Times surely change.All in all, a great read for those aspiring to write and those that have read a news story ever in their lives.>>"It is as if the story is being translated into another language by an angry man with a limited vocabulary." >>"News are things that actually happened, not what people say."
