--Thomas Rosteck, author of See It Now Confronts McCarthyism: Television Documentary and the Politics of Representation "At once an imaginative history of '60s television and a judicious reassessment of critical social theory regarding the politics of television news, Investigated Reporting examines some of the most controversial programs in the history of television, showing how the boundaries of acceptable journalism were negotiated during a momentous era of social and political controversy. Creative, incisive, and thorough, Raphael's analysis makes a truly significant contribution to our understanding of complex social and institutional relations that shape the flow of images and ideas on television."
--Michael J. Curtin, author of Redeeming the Wasteland: Television Documentary and Cold War Politics "This historically and conceptually rich account of fifteen years of television network investigative reporting adds in vitally important ways to our knowledge and understanding of how journalism works and what role it plays in a democratic society."
--Ted Glasser, coauthor of Custodians of Conscience: Investigative Journalism and Public Virtue
