520 |a This in-depth look at the Washington Post from a Pulitzer Prize-nominated Post veteran answers the question "Do newspapers still matter?" with a resounding yes. Dave Kindred takes you inside the heart of the legendary newspaper and offers a unique opportunity to see what it really takes to produce world-class journalism every day. Granted unprecedented access to every nook and cranny of the paper, including candid exchanges with its most celebrated journalists, such as Bob Woodward, Sally Quinn, David Broder, and former executive editor Ben Bradlee, Kindred provides a no-holds-barred look at the twenty-first-century newsroom. As it becomes more difficult to maintain journalistic integrity, stay relevant in the age of blogs, and meet Wall Street's demands for profits, the newspaper--more than any other medium--also shoulders the tremendous responsibility of acting as a watchdog for democracy.--From publisher description.
