A riveting account of how the public's right to know is being attacked by an unholy alliance among politicians, news organizations and corporate America, from the producer at the heart of the 60 Minutes/George Bush National Guard controversy.For twenty five years, Mary Mapes has been an award-winning television producer and reporter--the last fifteen of them for CBS News, principally for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and 60 Minutes. She had the bedrock of respect of her peers--in the last year alone, she broke the story of the Abu Ghraib prison tortures (which won CBS The Peabody Award) and the existence of Strom Thurmond's illegitimate bi-racial daughter Essie Mae Washington. But it was Dan Rather's lightning rod of a story on George W. Bush's National Guard Service that brought Mapes into an unwanted limelight. The firestorm that followed the broadcast led not only to Mapes' firing and Rather's stepping down from his anchor chair a year early, but to an unprecedented "internal" inquiry into the story--chaired by former Reagan Attorney General Richard Thornburgh.Peopled with an historic and colorful cast of characters--from Karl Rove to Summer Redstone to John Kerry to Col. Bobby Hodges--this groundbreaking book about how the news is made (and unmade) will make news when it appears this fall. But this, it turns out, is only part of the story. Mapes talks for the first time about the riveting behind-the-scenes action at CBS during this frenzied period and exposes some of the largest political and social controversies that have broken in this new age of dissonance.

Her gallop through such Mapes-produced ‘60 Minutes II' scoops as securing Karla Faye Tucker's death row interview or tracking down Strom Thurmond's black illegitimate daughter or exposing the atrocities of Abu Ghraib gives us a heart-racing glimpse of a resourceful TV pro in her fearless prime. TRUTH AND DUTY is a plainspoke. ftentimes sympathetic look at how the National Guard story came to be and why it fell apart

MARY MAPES: In 1988, where he was pressing him on questions about Iran-Contra, and it turned into sort of a yelling match. And I think there has been bad blood on the part of the Bush folks for a long time. She broke the Abu Ghraib prison story and then was fired for the Bush National Guard story, still maintains until now that these documents have never been proven false.

Captivating books from beginning to end. This is a fascinating account of journalism, corporate greed, politics and the rise of the social media/blogging nightmare that has not brought the world closer but brought it to an unhealthy state. Mary Mapes should still be reporting. She provides ample evidence that her story about President Bush's National Guard days was accurate and well-documented. Very well done. I bought it the night after getting back from seeing the movie "Truth," based on this book. I really didn't remember a great deal about the controversy surrounding the story -- except what I had heard or read from other media outlets, which this book points out, were lazy and incompetent in their own treatment of the story. When other journalists should have been upholding this story (some did, most didn't), they were still too afraid of a powerful administration that had yet to lose favor with the American public.

This book is more of a biography of Ms. Mapes with an 'in depth' recounting of the incident that caused her termination. I purchased the book to learn the true facts of the Texas National Guard incident. Ms. Mapes was diligent in recounting her life story, adding in cute 'gossipy' incidents of her time as a journalist. While admitting that the papers she basis her accusation on can never be authenticated she believes they are real. She states as fact she was terminated, along with others, because of corporation fear of reprisal from the administration in power of the government.
"Reality didn't matter. Right or wrong didn't matter. Winning was the only thing that mattered
to any of the people masterminding the slash-and-burn campaigns that benefitted George W. Bush"
Innuendo, supposition, conjecture, and maybe paranoia seep through various petty statements about those Ms. Mapes believes control her career or had control of those who controlled her career. Is it true??? I don't know. This book had no answers--only condemnation. I am sure, after attempting to determine what this book was about by reading others review of this book on Amazon, that I will be vilified as in the opposing camp of Ms. Mapes and her followers. The implication of the books title and cover was not lived up to with any information contained therein. If I am to believe Ms. Mapes there are no honest journalists or reporters in the country and no electronic or paper press that can be trusted. Ms. Mapes book indicates that she and a few others let go over this incident were the only ones who could be trusted--all others are questionable at best. With only Ms. Mapes statements in this book I am uncomfortable accepting this as 'truth' and question what her 'duty' is regarding this incident.

I read the book after I saw the movie. The movie does not do the book justice. I'm a firm believer in "Nothing is what it seems." This book proved my point. This is why the news today is all fluff. Everyone is afraid of exposing what is really going on within this country. Mary Mapes was naive to believe that "the powers that be" would let her publish this story. Her career was destroyed, sending a message to all who dare follow in her footsteps. Let this be a warning to all of us.

Just when I thought I would get bogged down with details, Mary interjected her wonderful style of writing, wit, and personality making this a can't put down type of book. Somehow ten years later I fear we are reliving history.

A riveting, page turner of a book that relates to us how the sorry state the news media, both paper and televised,began its slide down the slippery slope. The story of tracking down the story on Bush and the Texas National Guard and the difficulties in getting to the truth is fascinating. The events that followed the airing of the information was discouraging and somewhat frightening. This is one of the books I think should be read by everyone. I still have unanswered questions after finishing the book. Why didn't the general public and the other news media people not support CBS, Mapes and Dan Rather in bringing this true story of Bush to light or at least ask for more clarification? Why when CBS News caved in and offered no support for the integrity of their employees even to the point of the "Internal Investigation" farce didn't other journalists start to ask questions and call for more investigation to determine the validity of the information? Read the Book.

I felt the book very important ans d credible information. My one criticism is that I felt that Mapes spent too much time and energy defending herself, The facts that she presented along with the proof of their authenticity were sufficient to prove her thesis that she was not derelict in
her research and preparation for the program. She did not have to keep defending what she did - it was "overkill."

This book makes your realize our system is broke. Cover up and lies is the Elite's. In the middle of the book i felt Mary was just covering her butt and trying to get the truth out that was not allowed. Sad bosses it about money.
Still reading it and enjoying its enlightenment about a controversial time and very important period and issue in our country that needed telling and exposing...
