Americas foremost analyst of media and journalism, New Yorkercolumnist and national bestselling author Ken Auletta has been called the James Bond of the media world (BusinessWeek) for his unparalleled access to news sources, keen analysis, smooth writing style, and uncompromising commitment to his profession. In Backstory, Aulettas piercing gaze sweeps into every corner of a subject that has generated tremendous noise but precious little clear thinking: the state of todays media. From Howell Raines and the New York Timesto Roger Ailes and Fox News to the fractious relationship between President Bush and the press, the essays in Backstorysurvey the troubled landscape of the people and institutions who tell Americans what to believe. Comprehensive, trenchant, and unflinchingly honest, Backstoryis a book that only Ken Auletta could write.

Bestselling writer, journalist, and media critic Ken Auletta was born on April 23, 1942. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York and earned a B.S. from SUNY Oswego and an M.A. in political science from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. Before 1992, when he began to write the "Annals of Communications" column for The New Yorker, Auletta trained Peace Corps volunteers, served as Special Assistant to the U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce, participated in Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 presidential campaign, was Executive Editor of the Manhattan Tribune, and worked as the chief political correspondent for the New York Post. He also was a columnist for the Village Voice and contributing editor of New York Magazine, began writing for The New Yorker in 1977, and wrote extensively for the New York Daily News. Auletta has appeared on numerous television programs and written several books, including Three Blind Mice: How the TV Networks Lost Their Way; Greed and Glory On Wall Street: The Fall of The House of Lehman; World War 3.0: Microsoft and Its Enemies; Media Man: Ted Turner's Improbable Empire; and Googled: The End of the World As We Know It.
