Synopsis

Prize-winning reporter Robert Shogan draws on the lessons of nine presidential elections to show where the press goes wrong in the making of the president. The media, Mr. Shogan argues, now play the role of enablers. Without fully realizing it, they allow and abet the abuse of the political process by the candidates and their handlers. "Shogan has got it right...Bad News is a wake-up call for journalists everywhere."-Sam Donaldson, ABC News. "If there is such a thing as a good book about 'bad news,' this is it."-David S. Broder, Washington Post.

Robert Shogan has reported on presidential politics for more than thirty years, first for Newsweek, then as national political correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, based in Washington. His work has won the Scribes Book Award and the American Political Science Association prize for distinguished reporting of public affairs. His other books include The Double-Edged Sword, The Fate of the Union, Hard Bargain, and Riddle of Power. He lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
