Leslie Midgley, Author, Stewart Richardson, Editor Carol Publishing Corporation $19.95 (344p) ISBN 978-1-55972-015-1
If, as Midgley claims, conscientious and objective newsgatherers do ``the true work of The Lord,'' then he is among the elect. Now with NBC-TV, the author has had rich careers in both print and electronic journalism. He reported for the Denver Post , for papers in Chicago and the New York Herald Tribune , including its Paris edition; he then served as managing editor of Look. Moving into TV, he worked at CBS-News, producing specials and Walter Cronkite's evening news program. Midgley drops the famous names he has been associated with, among them Eric Sevareid, gangster Frank Costello, tycoon Houward Hughes. This is an intriguing book for those who care about media history. (Nov.)
