Spin Cycle : "Howard Kurtz is the only newspaper reporter in America who regularly makes the mightiest network news executives quake in their boots; now it's the Clinton administration's turn to sweat. In Spin Cycle, Kurtz unveils a fascinating portrait of a process that politicians and reporters alike would prefer to keep under wraps: how the Clinton White House attempts to influence press coverage of issues large and small-and how those efforts often succeed. Engrossing in its detail and provocative in its conclusions, Spin Cycle is Washington reporting at its very best." -Dan Rather. HC, 324 pages.
