All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid
All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid. Bai makes a strong case that American politics changed in a dramatic way the week in 1987 when then-Presidential candidate Gary Hart was whiplashed by the media over allegations of marital infidelity. This was the beginning of a period when images and impressions about character began to trump matters of policy and substance among the electorate. Bai’s writing keeps readers engaged, and his insights into Gary Hart and the complexity of character were solid.
