Pinning Down a Force in 20th-Century History

Konner, Joan

We have a choice: to remember William S. Paley as the television tycoon lionized by the media throughout his life, or to remember him as portrayed in Sally Bedell Smith's new biography, "In All His Glory." The two portraits are not the same, and it remains to be seen which has the greater power - the biographer or the press.
