Independence. Seymour M. Hersh admits often in his memoir titled, Reporter, that he’s not much of a team player. He also conveys that he has never been uncomfortable in being independent, and in not ingratiating himself as a way to join the “in” crowd. Those traits have served him well during a long career as a successful investigative journalist. Throughout the memoir, Hersh explains journalism, and reveals his hard work as a reporter. Powerful people in government have lied to him over many decades, but sooner or later, Hersh has brought their lies to the attention of all citizens, supported by evidence that has been irrefutable. Imagine my interest, and perhaps yours, as you read that he has material for a book on Dick Cheney but has to wait a while since some of his sources would be too exposed. Any reader interested in public policy will find something of interest in this finely written memoir. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Reporter from
