Front Cover
H. Holt, 1991 - Journalism - 318 pages
If No News, Send Rumors is a collection of over 1,000 anecdotes and aphorisms on American journalism that expose its warts and wisdom, its heroics and charades. The book covers all forms of media, starting in 1690 with the first newspaper in the colonies, right up to the election of '88. The result is a kaleidoscopic history of American newsgathering. "Fine, fast, funny--and deadeye accurate. . . ".--New York Magazine.
