Summary Daniel Schorr, an institution at CBS for decades and a twenty-year mainstay of NPR, is a legend in journalism. This is the first selection of Schorr's observations on politics and American life from the years 1990 to the present--a commentary on the history of our time. Schorr's essays reveal him as a master of pithy, get-to-the-point analysis, whether he is calling the Supreme Court's 2000 decision to seat George W. Bush as president a "junta" by a "Gang of Five" or eviscerating a conservative counterpart for belittling F.D.R.'s legacy. Schorr's experience--he has covered the administrations of twelve presidents--gives him an authority and range that permeate every page--From publisher description.
