Last minute shopping? Why Not Gift The Race Beat.

The Race Beat by Gene Roberts and Hank Klibanoff, chronicles the vital role the press played in raising public awareness of good and the evil involved in the 1960s race movement.

While “the race beat” eventually came to represent one of American journalism’s finest hours, it is interesting to note that much of the best reporting demanded that the rules of objectivity be tossed out the window.

The press had long ignored insidious nature of segregation and the damage it was doing to the southern blacks. Once the press began to throw off its own blinders and self imposed bias toward accepting the statements of politicians in power, the truth began to reveal itself to the entire nation, both the South and the North, mobilizing change.

Via the Nation.
