Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of PowerFor twenty-five years, Mary Mapes has been an award-winning television producer and reporter -the last fifteen years have been for CBS News, principally for "The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather" and "60 Minutes". Following the broadcast of Dan Rather's story on George W. Bush's National Guard Service, Ms. Mapes was fired, Dan Rather's stepped down from his anchor chair a year early, and an unprecedented "internal" inquiry into the story occurred.In her new book, Truth and Duty, Mary Mapes talks for the first time about the behind-the-scenes action at CBS during this period and exposes new details on President Bush's Guard career; the connection between a controversial news story and a corporation under fire from the federal government; an emergence of "digital McCarthyism" as conservative bloggers manipulate the internet; and discusses how news organizations are collapsing under political-and commercial-pressures.moreless
