Freedom of the press is a primary American value. Good journalism builds communities, arms citizens with important information, and serves as a public watchdog for civic, national, and global issues. But what happens when the news turns its back on its public role? Leonard Downie Jr., executive editor of The Washington Post, and Robert G. Kaiser, associate editor and senior correspondent, report on a growing crisis in American journalism. From the corporatization that leads media moguls to slash content for profit, to newsrooms that ignore global crises to report on personal entertainment, these veteran journalists chronicle an erosion of independent, relevant journalism. In the process, they make clear why incorruptible reporting is crucial to American society. Rooted in interviews and first-hand accounts, the authors take us inside the politically charged world of one of America’s powerful institutions, the media.

Leonard "Len" Downie, Jr. (born May 1, 1942), was the executive editor of The Washington Post. He held this position since September 1, 1991, after serving as managing editor for seven years. During Downie's tenure as executive editor, The Washington Post won 25 Pulitzer Prizes. He grew up in and around Cleveland, Ohio. He received his BA and MA degrees in journalism and political science from The Ohio State University. he is the author of five books, the latest of which is The Rules of the Game. He lives in Washington, DC, with his wife, Janice. He is the father of four grown children, two stepchildren and grandfather to two grandchildren.
