Praise for the original edition:

"No phenomenon in American life cries out for examination more than the impact of the news media on persons, movements, and events. One need not accept all of Gitlin's provocative conclusions to praise the exacting scholarship that has gone into this study of what happens to an anti-establishment movement performing on an establishment stage."—Daniel Schorr, commentator, National Public Radio

"An enormously useful book. . . . Gitlin writes about the way news organizations, as the category implies, 'organize' the news world, both for practitioners—reporters, editors, and managers—and for the consumers—readers, viewers, and perhaps even more important, decision-makers."—Frank Mankiewicz, Washington Journalism Review

"Gitlin tells us . . . how the New York Times and CBS reported on Students for a Democratic Society, and how their choices mattered for the development of the 60s movement and the containment of serious political change."—Gaye Tuchman,
In These Times
