The Troubles of Journalism: A Critical Look at What's Right and Wrong with the Press

By William A. Hachten | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book is based on a 50-year involvement with newspapers and journalism education. My colleagues, teachers, and students, particularly during my 30 years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, have helped to educate me about the press. Aware that I will omit some, let me name several of the most influential people. Among my teachers, I am indebted to Chilton Bush, Ralph Casey, Edward Gerald, Ray Nixon, Mitch Charnley, Bob Jones, and Harold Chase. Among friends and colleagues, I learned a good deal from Ralph Nafziger, Harold "Bud" Nelson, Wilmott Ragsdale, John McNelly, Graham Hovey, Alex Edelstein, Jim Baughman, Charles Higbie, Jim Fosdick, Steve Chaffee, Jack McLeod, Scott Cutlip, Anthony Giffard, Raymond Louw, and Bill Blankenburg. Students, who later became colleagues and friends, include Dave Nimmer, Don Pember, Al Hester, Dwight Teeter, John Stevens, Bob Stevenson, Don Dodson, Don Shaw, Earl Hutchison, Frank Kaplan, and David Gordon. I owe much to all of them.

Finally, as with everything I have written for publication for many years, this book has benefitted from the careful editing and insightful suggestions by my wife, Harva Sprager Hachten. I thank John McNelly and Jim Fosdick for their comments on this volume. I alone am responsible for the judgments and errors in this book.
