Apropos of its subject, it should be no surprise that the oral history of legendary Washington journalist Carl Stern is all of the following:  engrossing, entertaining, insightful, fascinating – and “newsworthy” in its own right.  Covering everything from Watergate to the Supreme Court to the Branch Davidian crisis to his own crucial role as a FOIA plaintiff, Stern recounts his many decades covering the D.C. courts for NBC News.  After reading Judy Feigin’s summary of Stern’s recollections, it will be impossible not to want to read the oral history itself – if only to learn more about how Stern knew the result in United States v. Nixon the night before the decision.
