David Westin: An Insider's View of TV News
David Westin, who presided over ABC News for 13 years, gives a behind-the-scenes look at his tenure and the major news that marked it. With touchstones from the recent past President Clinton's impeachment, the 2000 election, and the war in Iraq, among others Westin, president of ABC News from 1997-2010 and author of Exit Interview, takes us inside the chaos of the newsroom, addressing basic questions about journalists today, and the industry's central question: Is it possible for journalists to be both good at their jobs and people of good moral character?
