"These candid conversations capture the difficulties of reporting during crisis and war, particularly the tension between government and the press. The participants include distinguished journalists - American and foreign, print and broadcast - and prominent public officials, past and present.

As the Information Age collides with the War on Terrorism, that challenge becomes even more critical and daunting."--Jacket

International news & foreign correspondents by Stephen Hess( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American public opinion is having more influence than ever on how U.S leaders respond to international crises and formulate foreign policy. Yet at the same time, there is evidence that Americans are increasingly ill-informed about international affairs. This paradox raises many serious questions: What information about the world are we given by the mainstream media? How much? How good? By whom? Through what means? And how much foreign news is really enough? In this fifth volume of his highly acclaimed Newswork series, Stephen Hess addresses these questions and offers a revealing look at how the print and broadcast media cover international affairs and how foreign correspondents do their work

News & newsmaking : essays by Stephen Hess( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before Stephen Hess began studying Washington journalism in 1977, most books on the subject were reporters' memoirs, interesting more for their analysis of government-press interactions. But the events of the 1970s, notably Watergate, made it obvious that the press was much more important to the governmental process than had been assumed. Hess, an experienced observer of the gathering and dissemination of news in Washington, set out to examine how the press fit into the public life of the capital. Thus began his Newswork series, which has come to include four highly acclaimed books - The Washington Reporters, The Government/Press Connection, The Ultimate Insiders, and Live from Capitol Hill - and his new book International News & Foreign Correspondents
