A Note to Readers: Jim Goodale on His Media Whirlwind

The book I have written “Fighting for the Press” has had a rollercoaster ride since the Associated Press  and Rosengate stories hit the headlines because I say Obama may be worse than Nixon. 

I have done at least 50 TV, print, Net and radio interviews since then.  I will be on the Leonard Lopate Show on NPR today at 12:00 noon EDT.

My piece for the Daily Beast and a Huff Post story drew over 6,000 comments virtually, to coin a phrase, unprecedented.

“Is Obama Worse for Press Freedom than Nixon?” by James C. Goodale, The Daily Beast, May 14, 2013

“Just a Crook? Pentagon Papers Lawyer Thinks Obama is Worse Than Nixon,” by Michael H. Miller, New York Observer, May 14, 2013

Uniformly the reaction to the book is that it is a thriller and a good read.Real Talk on Fighting for the Press: the Inside Story of the Pentagon Papers and Other Battles, May 7, 2013.
