TRUTH IN OUR TIMES Inside the Fight for Press Freedom in the Age of Alternative Facts

by | Read by Stephen Graybill, David E. McCraw [Intro.]

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Stephen Graybill uses a steady professional tone for this audiobook in which ethics in journalism and the law are held to the highest standard. McCraw was the deputy attorney general for the NEW YORK TIMES for 17 years, including the time of the 2016 national election. He discusses his struggles with obtaining information under the Freedom of Information Act (the U.S. government stated one request would take years to fulfill), pressures from powerful celebrity attorneys during the rise of the #MeToo movement, and grappling with the concepts of "lie" and "truth" in the age of the Trump administration. Listeners who follow the battle for a free press in a time when journalists have been called the "enemy of the people" will find themselves engrossed by McCraw's insights and Graybill's confident yet mannered narration.
