JLF Asks More of Coverage

posted on

Paul Chesser, in the American Spectator
writes that journalists should seek the truth by asking difficult
questions.  Highlighting the way some reporters play softball on
hard issues like abortion, Chesser laments the degradation of the trade
and its irresponsibilty towards recording the present.  In like
mind, W. Fitzhugh Brundage’s new book The Southern Past: A Clash of Race and Memory, to be reviewed by JLF’s resident historian, Troy Kickler,
focuses on the social meaning of what southerners choose to remember
and how.  Brundage shows us that whoever covers history influences
the way it’s remembered.
