We might still be losing American lives in a place called Vietnam were it not for writers like the late David Halberstam. (In fact, it was the failure of the press to follow up on the lies of the Johnson Administration that allowed the so-called Gulf of Tonkin incident propel us into an unprecedented escalation ...
... Jimmy Breslin on Marquette coach Al McGuire's wise-guy street hustle and heart and continuing with David Halberstam's portrait of the late-'70s Portland Trail Blazers. Contemporary selections include ESPN's Zach Lowe, who takes a break here from his incisive and rigorous analytical approach to reflect ...

He told newly elected President John F. Kennedy, over tea, that the foreign policy specialist was great about “making speeches calling for bold, brave, new ideas, and yet always lacking in bold, brave, new ideas,” according to David Halberstam in "The Best & The Brightest." A more worrisome quote from ...
Pulitzer Prize winner David Halberstam wrote a wonderful book about young civil rights activists, “The Children.” Halberstam makes clear that teenagers made a huge difference in the civil rights era. He documents that leaders and followers sometimes intensely disagreed about strategies and goals.

Postwar Japan's economic development would have been impossible without the growth of its automobile industry. American journalist David Halberstam vividly described the post-World War II “economic reversal” that occurred when Japan overtook the American motor vehicle manufacturing empire in his ...
UNITED NATIONS — If one snapshot from his swing through Washington and New York this week captured the position in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel finds himself, it wasn't when he sat beside President Trump on Monday and saluted him as a modern-day Cyrus, Balfour and ...
He suggested I read a book called The Reckoning by David Halberstam. The Reckoning is a phenomenal book about many things, but one of them is the decline of the American auto industry in the 1970s. The book chronicled how US automakers' dominance of the industry up to that point had rendered it ...

These include Neil Sheehan, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his exhaustive book about the tragedy of Vietnam; David Halberstam (“Best and the Brightest”), H.R. McMaster (“Dereliction of Duty”) that outlines those lies. And, combat veterans on the ground like Philip Caputo, “Rumor of War.” If nothing else ...
David Halberstam, in The Best and the Brightest, introduced me to Chester Bowles. Bowles was deputy secretary of state in the first year of the Kennedy administration. The reason he was of interest to Halberstam was that Bowles was the outlier on the team. He opposed the invasion of Cuba and was ...
During that time, I became a source for NBC reporter John Chancellor on what was happening inside Central High, as David Halberstam noted in his book, "The Fifties". Chancellor was my insurance policy, my protection against the world's inequalities. Through his reporting, Chancellor dispelled the lies ...
As historian David Halberstam saw it, King was learning from the experiences of people like the sanitation workers: “Their voice is harsh and alienated. If King is to speak for them truly, then his voice must reflect theirs.” Less than a month later, King gave one of his most powerful speeches in Memphis, and ...
Nearly 60 years ago, a young reporter in the Saigon bureau of The New York Times became the target of President Kennedy, who sought to silence his reporting of the United States' escalating involvement in Vietnam. The choice David Halberstam — and the Times — made more than a generation ago to ...
"I have often said that without the members of the media, the Civil Rights Movement would have been like a bird without wings," Lewis wrote shortly after Halberstam's death. "David Halberstam, as a reporter for The (Nashville) Tennessean, was a sympathetic referee who helped to convey the depth of injustice in the ...

By 1968, as David Halberstam wrote in a book at the time, “The easy old coalition between labor and Negroes was no longer so easy; it barely existed. The two were among the American forces most in conflict.” But Kennedy waited to enter the race until March 16, 1968, only after the peace candidate ...

You can see it at the end of "The Education of a Coach," David Halberstam's 2005 history of Bill Belichick's career: "The younger players thus came to understand that this was what the NFL was all about, that the better you were, the harder you worked," Halberstam wrote. "To [Belichick], everything had to ...
A Hilliard graduate's love of sports – baseball in particular – launched his career as an author, he said. Glenn Stout, a 1976 Hilliard High School graduate, Jan. 23 shared his journey as an author and editor with journalism students at Hilliard Davidson High School who write and produce the school's ...
In the early years famous reporters like David Halberstam, Neil Sheehan, and Malcolm Browne merely challenged the effectiveness of US policies, not their moral or political basis. That said, by the time of the Pentagon Papers in 1971, the defiance of the media to the Nixon administration was quite ...
For someone being introduced to the field, I would recommend "Freakonomics" by Steven Levitt and "The Reckoning" by David Halberstam. The latter book lays out the evolution of the entire US car industry, and how the oil crisis in the 70s affected the need for fuel economy. That was one of the first books ...
“Los Angeles is the major city in America most resistant to the power of labor unions, not because it evolved naturally that way but because first Gen. Harrison Gray Otis and then Harry Chandler fought the unions in a constant ongoing struggle that was nothing short of war,” David Halberstam wrote in his ...
In one of the most rhetorically important sections of the book, Wolff takes aim at an earlier volume that helped to define serious political nonfiction, The Best and the Brightest by David Halberstam. Steve Bannon, Wolff writes, encouraged Trump staffers to read Halberstam: “It makes the world clear, amazing ...
My favorite book is David Halberstam's The Breaks of the Game, the 1981 classic that remains the best sports book ever written. What's striking about his prose, even 37 years later, was how little he relied on quotes. He transformed a random Trail Blazers season into something of a sports novel, gaining the ...
My favorite book is David Halberstam's The Breaks of the Game, the 1981 classic that remains the best sports book ever written. What's striking about his prose, even 37 years later, was how little he relied on quotes… He didn't need quotes. You believed him because he was Halberstam — the best at what ...
Wickersham's reporting isn't trustworthy because it doesn't do a good enough job of reminding Bill Simmons of David Halberstam's reporting. Pieces of reporting that were clearly central to Wickersham's story were not actually important. Bill Simmons doesn't think Bob Kraft would have done something that ...
Much is made of Bannon's appreciation of the late David Halberstam's 1972 classic "The Best and the Brightest." Halberstam's book focused on all the talented liberal elites of the era who swarmed the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, only to plunge the nation into the quicksand of Vietnam. It was ...
The obvious players, of course, include the journalists like Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, and Ben Hecht who became great novelists, and the likes of Ida B. Wells, David Halberstam, and Hunter S. Thompson, whose nonfiction impacted both society and the craft of writing. The unexpected part is how ...
As David Halberstam wrote in The Fifties—erroneously, as we'll see—“It was Bill Levitt who first brought Ford's techniques of mass production to housing,” making possible “inexpensive, attractive single-unit housing for ordinary citizens, people who had never thought of themselves as middle class before.”.
“It's for a family with one dog and no kids,” said David Halberstam of DH Construction, who gave this paper an exclusive look inside the unfinished building. The interior of the house on Avenue T between Hendrickson Street and Flatbush Avenue doesn't appear too close to being finished — it's mostly steel ...
Last week, we lost two more heroes from the brave and dogged press corps that covered the Civil Rights era of the 1950s and '60s, journalists who, as the great David Halberstam once stated, were “war correspondents on native soil.” Simeon Booker died at 99; Roy Reed at 87. Like war correspondents on ...
... Robert Wright's Why Buddhism Is True. In the works: James and Deborah Fallows's exploration of middle America, Our Towns. Advice for authors: “Great ideas, great thinking, and great writing—that's the combination that we always look for.” Fave DC book: David Halberstam's The Best and the Brightest.
Nearly 60 years ago, a young reporter in the Saigon bureau of The New York Times became the target of President Kennedy, who sought to silence his reporting of the United States' escalating involvement in Vietnam. The choice David Halberstam — and the Times — made more than a generation ago to ...
The journalist David Halberstam wrote all this much better years ago. Examining Indiana's fascination with the sport in a 1985 article for Esquire Magazine, he observed: “(S)mall towns, villages often, neither grew nor died; they just stayed there suspended between life and death. In an atmosphere like that, ...
In 1963, a 29-year-old reporter named David Halberstam won a Pulitzer Prize for his dispatches from Vietnam detailing the corrupt nature of the Diem regime and the growing United States participation there. Even so, many Americans had scarcely heard of the country. Most of Madison was surprised when ...
Reading David Halberstam's book about Jordan and the 1998 Chicago Bulls made me consider certain aspects of this Warriors team and season. By Thomas Bevilacqua@THBevilacqua Jan 5, 2018, 5:00pm PST. tweet · share · Rec. I mentioned on my recent appearance on the Golden State of Mindcast that I recently read ...
Western experts could effectively manage the world. David Halberstam's The Best and the Brightest (1972), however, demonstrated the fallacy of such arrogance during the Vietnam War. It became painfully evident that empirical science within higher education did not “exhaust the approaches to trustworthy ...
The journalist and historian David Halberstam called it “the first great media event of the civil rights movement.” Jet was the country's only national newsmagazine for blacks, and it became a kind of social media for African-Americans in an era well before the internet. It was small in size, and therefore easily ...
... it made you smile but also cautioned you about assuming journalism was changing just because the technology was." His connections and friendships in the traditional newspaper industry brought well known Pulitzer Prize-winning speakers to campus such as David Halberstam and Harrison Salisbury.
But their appearance in Jet and several other African-American publications helped make the Till murder "the first great media event of the civil rights movement," historian David Halberstam wrote in his book "The Fifties." Like Till, Booker grew up in the North and said he had never entered the Deep South ...
Images of Till's mutilated, disfigured body, published in Jet and other African-American publications, helped make Till's murder “the first great media event of the civil rights movement,” historian David Halberstam later wrote. Booker also covered the Montgomery bus boycott and, in 1965, the civil rights ...
No mainstream news outlets published the images of Till's body, but their appearance in Jet and other African-American publications helped make the Till murder “the first great media event of the civil rights movement,” historian David Halberstam wrote in his book “The Fifties.” As one of the few black ...
I do vaguely remember reading in David Halberstam's “The Education Of A Coach” that Belichick's Croatian family name was “Bilicic.” And as tended to happened with some foreign names upon arriving in the United States as an immigrant, that name ended up changing. According to CroatianHistory.net, ...

We wouldn't know of this American complicity without the invaluable work of reporters like Neil Sheehan and David Halberstam, who were raw and young and brash and sometimes foolhardy in their dispatches. It was undoubtedly their dogged free-wheeling approach, a fierce pursuit of journalistic truth that ...
Two moments and whoosh — here I am at The Times, a storied brand unlike any other in American media history (just pick up “The Powers That Be” by David Halberstam to learn why). To be its editor in chief is equal parts humbling and daunting. I say that even after five years at the New York Times, where ...
And it's no longer a defining institution as it once was in David Halberstam's book "The Powers That Be." It's now, you know, going to be part of ...
