Eric Alterman

Sound and Fury: The Making of the Punditocracy

For this new edition, Eric Alterman has made revisions throughout the book, with new material on the impact of the O. J. Simpson trial and the rise of MSNBC as well as on the Clinton scandals, the media's obsession with Monica Lewinsky, and the resulting conflation of investigative reporting with gossip.

The best book yet on the insider culture of Washington.
