In his widely acclaimed study, The Washington Reporters, Stephen Hess profiled Washington journalists and their effect both on the nation's news and on national affairs. Now in The Government/Press Connection he turns his attention to the often-maligned government press operations--their nature, their relations with reporters, and their effect on the news.About the Author:
