If anyone still believes the mainstream press protects the interests of the average citizen, this book will disabuse you of that notion very quickly. Olmstead delivers a fascinating and lively expose of how the Washington press corps -- faced with a real opportunity in the 1970s to bring light and accountability into one of the darkest corners of our government -- turned tail and ran. Her book goes a long way towards explaining why media coverage of the so-called "intelligence community" is so lame and subservient, even to this day. Well-written, thoroughly enjoyable, and damned infuriating.

There have been so many books on this subject which have attempted to present one or another political party's point of view in a convincing manner that it is truly refreshing to read an author who gets her facts straight and lets the reader come to his or her own conclusions. Olmsted looks carefully at these investigations, and presents them honestly and with understanding. Good job!
