Unsilent Revolution is the story of the impact television news has had on politics, current events and the print media. Looking at major events over the past four decades, this work is an episodic history of the rise and ascendency of television news. Donovan and Scherer have used several unpublished journalists' accounts in this book, which differs from other studies in that it synthesizes scholarly sources along with first-hand experiences. Robert J. Donovan was chief of the Washington bureau of the New York Herald Tribune and the Los Angeles Times. He is currently a writer in Washington, D.C. Ray Scherer was a member of the NBC News Washington staff when its television broadcasts began in 1947. He was NBC's White House correspondent during the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson administrations and, later, NBC London correspondent.
