Our first NY Times review

James Goodale’s Fighting for the Press scored a mini-review in the NY Times Book Review on August 18. The review called the book ‘an engaging memoir’ of Goodale’s behind-the-scenes story of the Pentagon Papers when he was the Times’ general counsel. Papers despite concerns from outside counsel and Times executives about threats of criminal prosecution by the Nixon administration. Finally, reviewer Jeffrey Frank noted that Goodale’s comments on the Bush and Obama campaigns against reporters and for government secrecy represent ‘a warning flare’ for press freedom and the First Amendment.
