Bad City

by Paul Pringle

Bad City cover

A real treat for any fan of investigative journalism.

Shocking and engaging, this book is similar in many ways to the instant classic, Ronan Farrow’s Catch and Kill — in the subject of the investigation, as both Harvey Weinstein and Carmen Puliafit are the same kinds of villains, praying on young and vulnerable women, as well as in the manner of storytelling, as both authors carefully recreate their steps leading to groundbreaking publication and they both have to fight their own bosses to publish an important story. I loved all the details of the editorial process described by Pringle and his commitment to doing what is right.

This book vividly shows why the free press and investigative journalism are so important and need our support — without it the world would be a worse place and people in power would abuse it even more.
