The Untapped Power of the Press argues that Americans ought to be able to find out how government really works in order to debate the issues. What exists today, the author asserts, is a shadow world created by journalists and government officials. Wolfson calls for more quality media power, and more hardhitting analysis, and closer scrutiny of government policy. He provides practitioners, students of the news media, and others, with an absorbing picture of how the news of Washington is generated, and how that process could be enriched. Among the issues covered are: press freedom and responsibility, the power of the media, and television's impact on Congress.
