Item Description...
Overview
In the 1980's, Rep. Newt Gingrich, then Republican whip and organizer of House Republican conservatives, was a major source for The Washington Times. Gingrich and his ban of young-turk conservative Republican House members elected in the late 1970s and early eighties were tired of their party's leaders who had become the lazy, perpetual minority. Gingrich, Trent Lott, and other young Republican House members reached out to reporters like George Archibald, fed them stories, gave them access to documents and sources, and briefed them in daily meetings in Gingrich's second-floor whip's office in the U.S. Capitol. All told, the years from 1989 to 1998 were a field of juicy clover for The Washington Times news reporters. The circulation director often commented that The Washington Times sold 10,000 extra single copies each day when sex was on Page One, 10,000 more copies from orange boxes on the streets when the Redskins football team was out front, and 10,000 more when they had a big political scandal. The recipe was clear and became the Times mantra. Washington is a dog-eat-dog town where overpaid hangers-on work constantly to secure their own positions - politicians, congressional and executive branch staff members and civil servants, lobbyists for corporate, union, and other bosses, lobbyist and interest-group political fellow-travelers whose paychecks come from Washington's primary business - politics around the clock. In "Journalism is War", George Archibald recounts stories behind these stories - Democratic vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro's financial ethics problems in 1984, Reagan media adviser Michael Deaver's lobbying scandal leading to his perjury conviction in 1986, House Speaker Jim Wright's disgrace and resignation in 1989, subsequent congressional scandals in the early 1990s, and cultural conflict stories to the present. Fasten your seat belt. These are the behind-the-scenes revelations about the selfish, narcissistic, power-hungry political and media players on all sides who played the game for their own benefit and power -- who was stabbing whom and why. No holds barred!

More About George Archibald

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! George Archibald, retired senior investigative reporter for The Washington Times, teaches undergraduate journalism courses and has written a book about stories behind the stories during his 30 years as a newspaperman. He covered Congress, the federal government and national politics in Washington for 23 years as a senior investigative reporter for The Washington Times after he broke the Geraldine Ferraro financial ethics story in 1984. He was the newspaper's national education reporter from 2001 to 2005. Archibald was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in journalism four times. He reported as a former government insider, having also run a congressional office, served as a budget policy staffer on the House Appropriations Committee and briefly as a deputy assistant secretary of education during the Reagan administration. Mr. Archibald's 30 years as a newspaperman include six years as editor and general manager of college, military and community newspapers. Archibald's first job during high school in 1962 was as an assistant for the late national radio news commentator Fulton Lewis, Jr. He was editor of his college newspaper at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., where he got a degree in political science and history. Drafted into the military in 1967, Archibald served as editor of an Air Force newspaper at the nationAs largest pilot-training base in Arizona during the Vietnam era. After military service, he was a staff columnist, letters editor and editorial pages makeup editor for The Arizona Republic in Phoenix from 1970 to 1973. During the remainder of the 1970s in Washington, D.C., he was a press secretary and legislative assistant for U.S. Rep. John B. Conlan, chief of staff and House Appropriations Committee aide for U.S. Rep. Eldon Rudd, both Republicans, with a break in 1976 when he opened and managed the Washington office of the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative state legislators' group, and helped produce ALEC's first book of suggested state legislation. Archibald served on President Reagan's Transition Team at the National Science Foundation and co-authored the education chapter of the Heritage Foundation's heralded report to the incoming president, Mandate for Leadership. In 1981, he was budget specialist for President Reagan's assistant secretary for legislation at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He also served as deputy assistant secretary for legislation at the Department of Education, but resigned over policy differences with Education Secretary Terrel H. Bell. Archibald joined a pre-publication team that started The Washington Times in January 1982 and was the newspaper's first reporter hired for the national news desk. He covered federal budget and Social Security reform battles on Capitol Hill before becoming an investigative reporter. The paper nominated him first for the Pulitzer Prize for breaking the Ferraro story the day she was nominated in July 1984, and again with Paul Rodriguez for breaking the Barney Frank-Washington call-boy scandal in 1989. Archibald and Rodriguez also won the National Newspaper Association's second place award that year for their exclusive series about Congressman Frank's involvement with a male prostitute who operated a sex-for-hire ring from the Massachusetts Democrat's Capitol Hill apartment. The City Paper in Washington dubbed Archibald "Mad Dog" after he broke successive investigative stories on former Reagan aide-turned-lobbyist Micheal Deaver in 1985 (for which he got his third Pulitzer nomination) and disgraced House Speaker Jim Wright. The City Paper gave Archibald its "Hit Man of the Year" award in 1986 for stories about activities of Rep. Patricia Schroeder, Colorado Democrat, in support of Nicaragua's pro-Marxist Sandinista revolution. In the early 1990s, Mr. Archibald covered the Keating Five savings-and-loan influence-peddling story and the House post office and bank scandals leading to Republican takeover of Congress. During the 1992 presidential campaign, Archibald investigated Bill Clinton's earlier tenure as a Rhodes Scholar and anti-Vietnam War activist at Oxford University in England and his 12-year stint as Arkansas governor. He wrote the Times' "record" stories about President Bush and Governor Clinton. Following Clinton's election, he left Washington from 1993-94 to return to community journalism as editor-general manager of The Warren Sentinel in Front Royal, Va, a weekly owned by Byrd Newspapers. Among many awards, Archibald personally won the Virginia Press Association's first-place editorial writing award and second-place for a community news series on fire and emergency services. With a greatly improved news product, he also dramatically increased The Sentinel's circulation and advertising revenue before The Washington Times recruited him back to investigative reporting. After rejoining The Times, he covered waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal government and the politics of the feminist mo

Truth in Journalism  Nov 9, 2009
Finally a jornalist who is not afraid to tell the truth. No "politically correct" stories here.Just the facts and you can decide. We have heard so much hype on many stories over the years. The author puts us at the scene of the stories and "behind the curtains" so to speak so that we can decide for ourselves how we will view the stories..now thanks to Archibold we are provided with ALL the details. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to read truthful expositions of current/recent events and the background information that was never discussed or brought out in the mainstream media.
