characters Truth in Our Times ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB David E McCraw recounts his experiences as the top newsroom lawyer for the New York Times during the most turbulent era for journalism in generationsIn October 2016 when Donald Trump's lawyer demanded that The New York Times retract an article focused on two women that accused Trump of touching them inappropriately David McCraw's scathing letter of refusal went viral and he became a hero of press freedom everywhere But as you'll see in Truth in Our Times for the top newsro This book is written in spirit of an old time newspaper man regaling cackling amused red nosed patrons in a smoke filled dimly lit bar with personal and singular stories of powerful forces arrayed against a humble man who plays it as though his power is negligible David E McCraw may be a down home guyas Trump says he has a soothing bedroom mannerbut his reach is hardly negligible Don t be fooledReading this book is every bit as fun as finding oneself under the influenceof a world class raconteur We get the inside story on the early days of Trump when in 2005 Tim O Brien then an editor at The New York Times published TrumpNation and got sued for it That book is funny and as good a read as this so get both In hiring practice The New York Times must adhere to the No Asshole Rule it s a real thing look it upMcCraw goes through the thought and research processes of releasing the couple pages of Trump s tax returns from 1995 and finding the NYT and Fox News agreeing for what seemed to be the first time in history He discusses the bizarre beginning to the Trump presidency during which Spicer sought to limit the access of newspapers certain reporters and insisted on telling lies about the size of crowds at the inaugurationWhen Trump declared the NYT to be failing the senior management couldn t resist bragging that Trump was doing for their bottom line than a war And McCraw doesn t make any bones about the fact that he stood for press freedom no matter which party The Times was talking to Hillary Clinton had a hostility to openness that doesn t befit a public officeholder Truer words were never spokenWhat I admired most about the tone in this book is the big brain reasonableness of the whole thing I mean here we have one of the premier newspapers in the world with all kinds of talented reporters doing important work but McCraw recognizes each as individuals and sees the need to tamp down their rage at times with the lies and shenanigans happening in the White House and the reporters impotence in the end to do anything but report on itMcCraw tells the story of Stanley Dearman a newspaper editor in Philadelphia Mississippi when three civil rights workers went missing in 1964 For 40 years after Dearborn kept reminding citizens in print of the unsolved case of the mens disappearance ignoring those who told him to drop it McCraw tells us Dearborn s work was an example of showing the difference between serving the people and catering to themWhen a reporter wrote a story trying to explain the phenomenon of an ordinary seeming midwest young man expressing adherence to the philosophies of Hitler the outrage visited upon the paper led to threats against the reporter s person and livelihood Dealing with threats against journalists had become a sadly routine part of my work life but each time a new one surfaced a feeling of discouragement about what the country had become would come over me again I hear that But perhaps the country has always been this way that even NYT readers are uick to show their lack of understanding about enormously important subjects that reach to our makeup as humans McCraw also discusses the case of David Sanger writing a book about cyber warfare based on it was argued in court leaks of classified documents from high level government insiders This is intensely interesting stuff for those who ever wondered how reporters manage to report on closely held high level secrets Probably most of us would agree with McCraw that the real problem for America was not the unauthorized revelation but an excess of secrecy Later he argues Secrecy breeds absurdityThe whole book is a feast of huge stories reaching right into the psyche of America s collective past nearly twenty years now of stomach churning days for someone in McCraw s position High stakes for everyone I will end before McCraw s account of the Weinstein story finishing with the decision to publish the 2010 Wikileaks cache and Greenwald Poitras decision to bypass the NYT to have Snowden s secrets published by The Washington Post and The Guardian instead McCraw sounds disappointed that The Times was bypassed on the Snowden story and I remember well the criticism of them at the time Maybe we should be better at inculcating all citizens now all potential publishers with a sense of social responsibilityI continued to believe the risks that came with freedom were worth the priceI also believe The Times had been right in its North Korea reporting and other sensitive national security stories to give the government a chance to responds before publication Many readers saw that process as a surrender It was important to debate whether The Times had been timid then or at other times but context was important our newsroom regularly decided that the government s objections were too abstract not believable insufficiently weighty or given by officials too far down the food chain to know and then resolved to move ahead with publishing But it s not a science Editors sometimes get it wrong National security is intrinsically the hardest of the calls they have to makeIf we are ever forced to defend against a criminal charge I wanted our legal narrative to be one of responsibility serious deliberation and a demonstrable concern about the public s best interests McCraw s book raises some thorny ethical uestions and answers one newspaper s take on many
