  • In new book, Seymour Hersh recounts the ‘stories behind the stories’ in long career

    Seymour Hersh has published a memoir in which he recounts his long career as an investigative journalist. His book, “Reporter,” shares what his publisher calls “the stories behind the stories.”

    Hersh has been making the rounds to promote the memoir, including a recent visit to the Washington, D.C., bookstore Politics & Prose.

    Hersh won a Pulitzer in international reporting for his FIJ-funded expose on the My Lai massacre during the Vietnam War. In his book, Hersh describes FIJ as “an important foundation that continues today to finance innovative newspaper and magazine stories.”

    The Washington Post called his book a welcome addition to those focused on “the making of journalism.”
