New Kurtz Book Goes Behind The Scenes In Anchor Wars

Posted: Updated:

There's been barely a whisper leading up to Howard Kurtz's new book, released tomorrow -- it's been embargoed, hushed, and kept under wraps for months, it's title and cover even kept off Amazon. The book is called Reality Show: Inside The Last Great Television News War, and it chronicles the saga of the latest -- and possibly last -- generation of Big Three Anchors: Brian Williams, Charlie Gibson, and Katie Couric. Amazingly, Kurtz and his publishers were able to keep the details of the 480-page book from leaking -- impressive considering the number of people he obviously spoke with across all three networks -- and today is the first day that details from the book have been made available. (Well, except for the Barnes & Noble in Deerfield, IL, where a certain shopper tells us it was proudly displayed on the new Non-Fiction table. Oops.) Kurtz's own Washington Post today runs a lengthy excerpt, the Drudge Report has a few scoops...and, rounding out this particular Big Three, ETP is pleased to offer our own ¡EXCLUSIVE! intel and excerpts from the book.
