Off Camera : Of TV anchormen, Saul Bellow notes, "These crowns of hair contribute charm and dignity but perhaps also oppress the brain with their weight." Not so Ted Koppel (who's got his own issues with the hair), and this book proves it. In Off Camera, one of America's most intelligent and respected journalists offers a year's worth of daily reflections. And this is not just any year, but the final year of the twentieth century, the year of Kosovo and Monica, Y2K and Columbine and the death of JFK, Jr. Though compelled on the job to keep mum on many issues, no such reticence restrains him in these pages. From cultural diversity to interactive TV, from the problem of racism in America to the dumbing down of network news, Koppel speaks his mind. And what a uniquely riveting mind it is. Witty and insightful, passionate and smart, this book finally lets us know the man behind the face we've trusted late at night for almost twenty years.
