Summary

Unsilent Revolution is the story of the impact television news has had on politics, current events and the print media. Looking at major events over the past four decades, this work is an episodic history of the rise and ascendancy of television news. Donovan and Scherer have used several unpublished journalists'' accounts in this book, which differs from other studies in that it synthesizes scholarly sources along with first-hand experiences.
