Summary
A fascinating look into four American media giants, and their once-unparalleled control over society and policy Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Halberstam turns his investigative eye to the rise of the American media in the ambitious and incisive The Powers That Be. First published in 1979, Halberstam's impressive volume focuses on the successes and failures of CBS Television, Time magazine, the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times.By examining landmark events such as Franklin D. Roosevelt's masterful use of the radio and the unprecedented coverage of the Watergate break-in, Halberstam demonstrates how the media has shifted from simply reporting the news to making it. Drawn from hundreds of in-depth interviews with insiders at each company, and hailed by the Seattle Times as a monumental X-ray study of power," The Powers That Be blends political ambition and the quest for truth in a page-turning read
Summary
Recounts the growth in power and influence of the great media institutions and the changes that they have brought about on the American scene, focusing on the people who make up Time Incorporated, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and CBS
