Seymour Hersh  Reporter

Pulitzer Prize-winner Seymour Hersh's fearless reporting has made him the investigative journalist of a generation. A staff writer for New York Times and The New Yorker, Hersh has appeared on the front page of nearly every major newspaper in the world and has received myriad awards over his lifetime. From Washington to Vietnam to the Middle East, Hersh broke some of the major stories of the last half-century starting with the My Lai massacre in 1969. He has never stopped challenging the official narratives of those in power.

In Reporter, Hersh describes what drove him and how, even at the nations most prestigious publications, he worked as an independent outsider. Reporter is an insiders look at the life of an investigative journalist, and a powerful reminder of the importance of a robust free press. Hersh's story is essential reading at a time when good journalism is under fire as never before.
