Editorial: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Condición del libro:New
In twenty-five years of covering the news, from rubbing elbows with Hollywood celebrities to getting on the wrong side of elected officials, from helping solve a mass murder case to facing death at the hands of terror squads and forest fires, Leo McElroy never found himself regretting his career choice. When a college advisor suggested he channel his interest in journalism toward the emerging call for professional news people in radio and television, McElroy amazed himself, and others, by actually heeding the advice. The result was a career both as a broadcast executive and industry leader who fought for stronger professional standards, equality for female journalists, and greater freedom of the press -- while also making headlines on the air as a network newsman for the major commercial networks and PBS. Often rueful, often funny, "...But You Can't Report That!" offers an insider's look at how the news business was, from hilarity to horror, from grim and gory to silly slapstick. And, along the way, McElroy offers some reflections on how journalism should be practiced to keep politicians more honest, the public more safe, and freedom more secure.About the Author:
Leo McElroy was a broadcast journalist and executive based in Los Angeles, working for CBS, NBC, ABC, and PBS during his 25 year career. He covered Hollywood stars, politics, forest fires, and was intimately involved in several high-profile murder cases. As an industry leader, he fought for greater opportunities for female and minority journalists, and often fought his bosses as well. He left active journalism in 1981 to head a prominent consulting firm, and still serves as a resource to a number of broadcast stations, analyzing and commenting on current affairs.
