By Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel
The Clinton Lewinsky scandal was the moment the post O.J media culture came to Washington and the coverage of politics. In Warp Speed: America in the Age of Mixed Media, Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel outline the contours of the new media landscape through the coverage of this pivotal moment, a time when the old journalism of verification gave way to a new journalism of assertion. With a preface by David Halberstam.
"In this extremely painful year, Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel...have outlined with great skill and lucidity the changes taking place and why they happened. Anyone concerned with how we as a profession are now using our precious freedoms...would do well to read their description of the decline of the editing function, and of the rise of a culture of allegation and assertion at the expense of an older culture of verification...[W]e are very much in their debt."
