From the Back Cover:

Praise for "Watchdogs, Blogs and Wild Hogs: A Collection of Quotations on Media"

"Gordon Jackson has rendered a great service with this book. With a keen eye for quotes that keeps the reader turning the page, he brings life to American Journalism. And even more significantly, he brings to life the First Amendment. Those reading this book will understand why free expression is so precious and why it is important that any government attempts to water it down should be vigorously resisted."

Patrick S. Washburn Professor, E.W. Scripps School of Journalism Editor, Journalism History

"Gordon Jackson has done us all an immense service by compiling this collection of wise and funny comments upon the media, everyone from Juvenal to the juvenile Howard Stern."

Roy Peter Clark Vice President and Senior Scholar Poynter Institute

"Gordon Jackson's book of quotes about journalism tells the story of the profession and its impact on readers over the years very well. There are many insightful sayings here. Some are profound, many are wise and many are amusing. Those who work in the profession will recognize the truths; those who do not will learn."

Mary Alice shaver Professor and Director Nicholson School of Communication University of Central Florida
