Quotes & Awards

  • “An impressive look at the intersection of clandestine government operations and a free press.”

    Booklist, starred review

  • “Gary Webb was the epitome of journalistic guts, but instead of winning a Pulitzer he was betrayed by his employers and slandered by his profession. Here is the true story, brilliantly if sadly told, of the reporter who unmasked one of the most evil conspiracies in American history.”

    Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums

  • “Gary Webb took on a historic task, to investigate a subject that is forbidden and secret. He glimpsed an essential truth, and two years later the CIA admitted even more. By then, Webb was discredited, disrespected, and destroyed by his own journalism community. His epic story, faithfully examined by Nick Schou, will never die until all the secrets he tried to probe are revealed.”

    Tom Hayden, political activist and author of The Port Huron Statement
