Aukofer spent 40 years as a newspaper reporter for The Milwaukee Journal, and this memoir describes how he covered such historic events as the civil rights movement and the impeachment proceedings against both Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. Written for general audiences, this book concentrates on the "golden era" of newspapers before the Internet and cable television and how high standards of responsible journalism were maintained according to the ideals of the Fourth Estate. The success of the Journal and its reputation as a leader in photojournalism and run-of-the-press color is also explored. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
