Newsroom Confidential-Lessons

Book Title: "Newsroom Confidential-Lessons (and Worries) From an Ink Stained Life" by Margaret Sullivan

Book Summary: Sullivan began her career at the Buffalo News, where she rose from summer intern to editor in chief. In Newsroom Confidential, she chronicles her years in the trenches battling sexism and throwing elbows in a highly competitive newsroom. In 2012, Sullivan was appointed the public editor of The New York Times, the first woman to hold that important role. She was in the unique position of acting on behalf of readers to weigh the actions and reporting of the paper's staff, parsing potential lapses in judgment, unethical practices, and thorny journalistic issues. With her celebrated mixture of charm, sharp-eyed observation, and nuanced criticism, Sullivan takes us behind the scenes of the nation's most influential news outlets to explore how Americans lost trust in the news and what it will take to regain it.
