"A News Story" is set in that time period when TV news veered away from being a money-losing public service medium and turned into a highly successful cash cow. The author has drawn on his own experiences while working in that industry, but it is not a "roman a clef," even if some of the characters seem to be recognizable. Two news directors provide a contrast in approach: One is dedicated to truth and integrity-- the other is motivated by power and greed. Ambition also goads several of the reporters and anchors. Some will do anything to achieve their goals, while others hold fast to higher standards. It is impossible to tell which is which by watching them on the screen. We have to know them off-camera-- taking our eye even into their bedrooms--to know the truth. This novel offers a revealing look behind the microphones and cameras of a TV news operation. "A News Story" is a fast-moving page turner that pulls no punches as it delves into the lives of its characters.
