One Man's America -- padded out with quotes not only from Grunwald's magazine articles and internal memos, but also from his high school compositions, poetry, and after-dinner remarks -- is far too long.

Stephen Bates is the author of three books, including If No News, Send Rumors: Anecdotes of American Journalism.
