Diamond goes behind the scenes to recount the papers recent and much heralded plan to win larger audiences and hold on to its dominant position in the new media landscape of celebrity journalism and hundred-channel television. Edwin DiamondsBehind the Timessets the Paper of Record straight--a fascinating look at the people and policies, the dissension and debate behind the seemingly serene masthead of theNew York Times.No newsroom is a Garden of Eden, and only the rare reporter wears a halo: theTimes,not surprisingly, is an imperfect place.
