Editorial Reviews

?A former reporter, Nemeth covers a neglected topic with this timely book. He uses case studies, surveys, and interviews to explore how and why ombudsmen work to provide accountability in news organizations.... Discussing specific incidents and how ombudsmen handled them, the book covers important concepts--including newspapers' historical resistance to hiring ombudsmen, a situation even more problematic in today's corporate environment. Virtually the only work of its type, this book should be in every academic library and required reading for editors and publishers. Those interested in the topic should also visit Organization of News Ombudsmen (http: //www.newsombudsmen.org). Essential. All academic and professional collections.??Choice
