Inhaltsangabe: This is the story of CBS, one of America's most renowned enterprises, the network that in so many ways set the standard in both entertainment and news. From its inception in 1928, through the heated live interview Dan Rather had with George Bush in 1988, you'll find out the real story behind the American institution. Robert Slater has written a wonderful book. He has captured the essence of CBS I have lived with for more than 45 years. Robert Slater's chronicle of CBS is the first fully objective story of this television drama ever written by a perceptive author with no personal axe to grind. Amid the recent spate of gossipy, scandal-mongering, and self-serving books by CBS people, Slater stands alone as a true historian of CBS. His history is brightened by anecdotes that turn the history into a great story, a most enjoyable read.
From Library Journal:
Slater accurately calls this a narrative history of CBS. Parts of this chatty book should be read aloud, preferably by a Murrow or Cronkite. "This might have been the story of a cigarmaker, or no story at all . . .," Chapter 1 begins. Though not a comprehensive history, the book explores the development of radio and television from 1928 to the present, as well as politics, programming, and personalities at CBS. The author, a Time correspondent, does not offer the sometimes limited inside view of Bill Leonard's In the Storm of the Eye ( LJ 5/15/87) or Peter McCabe's Bad News at Black Rock ( LJ 4/15/87). A useful addition to general and mass communication collections, the book would have benefited from a few new words from Chairman Bill Paley, the cigar maker's son who started it all. He declined to be interviewed, according to Slater, because he's writing a second book of memoirs. Jo Cates, Poynter Inst. for Media Studies Lib., St. Petersburg, Fla.
