This site aims to bring attention to The Great Coverup,
one of the best of the Watergate books, and to offer occasional commentary on public policy issues, with emphasis on press coverage.
The Great Coverup was named one of the best books of the year by the New York Times and the Washington Post when first published. Wrote David Halberstam in his book The Powers That Be: “From the start, the Post was thus unusually lucky. It had the perfect working editor at exactly the right level.”
