"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Short anecdotes on journalism--some very well-known and some dredged out of who knows where--are grouped into 16 categories, such as war reporting, politics, and the press as a business. Included are five anecdotes on President Kennedy's secret sex life; some awful one-liners by famous people (such as the book's title); how national TV newscasters said goodnight at the end of their broadcast; and what sort of items 18th-century journalist John Peter Zenger actually printed. This is pure trivia for journalism buffs; there is no index to make the book useful as a reference tool. Big media collections might keep a copy of this sophomoric yet comprehensive book for study breaks.
