The Great Reporters
David Randall knows journalism and loves journalism. He understands journalism from the inside but has also managed to maintain a principled detachment, brilliantly evidenced in his Universal Journalist, on every reading list where journalism is taught. The Great Reporters is both a work of respect and of analysis. He has asked what makes a great reporter, and has been shamelessly subjective in his selection. They are all characters, and the stories about them are as fascinating as the stories they told. Entertaining, amusing, even inspirational. Above all, what every good reporter aims to deliver, a great read. (Peter Cole, professor of journalism at the University of Sheffield )This book would be worth reading just for the account of how Meyer Berger, a New York Times reporter, spent six hours interviewing people about a killing spree by a young army veteran which left 12 neighbours and passers-by dead. Berger then went back to the paper and in two and a half hours wrote a 4,000-word account for the first edition, with not a word changed by the editor. He won a Pullitzer Prize for the report. There are other revelations. ‘I doubt if one journalism student in 10,000 knows his name,’ Randall writes about another of his selections, J.A.MacGahan. The impact of MacGahan’s reports from Bulgaria on the Turkish atrocities after a Bulgarian uprising against the Turks, which appeared in the London Daily News in the summer of 1876 is well described. It was news reporting which literally changed the map of Europe. Russia launched a war against Turkey in the spring of 1877 and the nations of Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro and Romania came into being. It is a difficult, indeed perilous, task to select the ‘thirteen best journalists who ever lived’ and one could disagree with some of the journalists chosen – nine Americans and four Britons. But that is not to deny David Randall’s enthusiasm and clarity in presenting his selection. A couple of complaints. Reading the book whets the appetite to find out more about some of the journalists but there is no bibliography to help the reader. Also, whilst Randall quotes some chunks of text by the journalists, it would have been good to have complete articles to read by them. That said, if you want to find out more about George Seldes, Nelly Bly or Ernie Pyle this is the book. (Campaign for Press & Broadcasting Freedom )The Great Reporters tells the stories of 13 of the world's most famous newspaper journalists. The book focuses on Americans such as Ernie Pyle and Meyer Berger and Brits such as Hugh McIlvanney - journalists who took chances to better inform the public. This particular excerpt looks at the life of Edna Buchanan, a Pullitzer Prize winning Miami Herald crime reporter whose workhorse attitude and shrewd writing helped her achieve the recognition she has today. (Doug Wernert, The Michigan Daily )They crusaded against Big Tobacco, covered world wars and locked themselves away in mental asylums to expose the truth. In The Great Reporters, David Randall, assistant editor at The Independent in London, provides in-depth profiles of 13 people who, in his estimation, are the greatest story chasers in newspaper history. Randall says he wrote The Great Reporters because he found there was a lack of works, especially in Great Britiain, that included these role models. (Presstime )Stop whining about profit margins and read this book. American newsrooms need to buy this inspiring book by the carton. David Randall's gripping collection of profiles in inky courage demonstrates that our current malaise amounts to ignorance of the perpetual siege of newsrooms by the powerful and the parsimonious. The Great Reporters (a marvelous allusion to subject George Seldes' useful books) is rich with the kind of lore that needs to inform the culture of newspaper journalism. (Dean Miller, The Poynter Institute for Media Studies )
