"News organizations are often expected to aim for objectivity; reporters claim to try to cover all sides of an issue without bias, as compared to commentators or analysts, who provide opinion or personal point of view. However, several governments impose certain constraints or police news organizations for bias.

This book demonstrates just how well magazine nonfiction can be. The journalists selected are not particularly well known but they are masters of their craft and present highly enjoyable reads." (jacket)
