"At a time when a band of critics are noisily ganging up on the press, Neil Henry adds a calm, original, and shrewd voice in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of 21st century news."—Tom Goldstein, author of The News at Any Cost and co-author of The Lawyer's Guide to Writing Well

"Neil Henry's book represents a cry from the heart of a former reporter on behalf of a new generation of journalists for an ethical reawakening of a press dedicated to fulfilling the information needs of a self-governing society."—Bill Kovach, Director, Committee of Concerned Journalists, and author of The Elements of Journalism: What Newspeople Should Know and the Public Should Expect

"This is an outstanding work from a respected journalist who takes a strong and unusual position on journalistic fraud and the media carnival that causes it. Not only does Henry take familiar examples from a different perspective, he does so in such a way that invites reflection and discussion from his readers. He makes his arguments effectively through the use of specific examples (including his own experience), historical context, and stylish writing that keep the reader moving through a book where outrage appears on so many pages."—Victor Merina, former Los Angeles Times reporter and Senior Fellow at the USC Annenberg
