<p><b>David E. McCraw recounts his experiences as the top newsroom lawyer for the <i>New York Times</i> during the most turbulent era for journalism in generations.</b><br /><b></b><br />In October 2016, when Donald Trump's lawyer demanded that <i>The New York Times</i> retract an article focused on two women that accused Trump of touching them inappropriately, David McCraw's scathing letter of refusal went viral and he became a hero of press freedom everywhere. But as you'll see in <i>Truth in Our Times</i>, for the top newsroom lawyer at the paper of record, it was just another day at the office.</p><p>McCraw has worked at the <i>Times </i>since 2002, leading the paper's fight for freedom of information, defending it against libel suits, and providing legal counsel to the reporters breaking the biggest stories of the year. In short: if you've read a controversial story in the paper since the Bush administration, it went across his desk first. From Chelsea Manning's leaks to Trump's tax returns, McCraw is at the center of the paper's decisions about what news is fit to print.</p><p>In <i>Truth in Our Times, </i>McCraw recounts the hard legal decisions behind the most impactful stories of the last decade with candor and style. The book is simultaneously a rare peek behind the curtain of the celebrated organization, a love letter to freedom of the press, and a decisive rebuttal of Trump's fake news slur through a series of hard cases. It is an absolute must-have for any dedicated reader of <i>The New York Times</i>.</p>

<div><b>From one of the most influential journalists of the last half century, an essential explanation and defense of a foundational American idea: free speech</b></div><div><br /></div><div><div>More than any other people on earth, we Americans are free to say and write what we think. The press can air the secrets of government, the corporate boardroom, or the bedroom with little fear of punishment or penalty. This extraordinary freedom results not from America's culture of tolerance, but from fourteen words in the constitution: the free expression clauses of the First Amendment.</div><div><br /></div><div>In <i>Freedom for the Thought That We Hate</i>, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Anthony Lewis describes how our free-speech rights were created in five distinct areas: political speech, artistic expression, libel, commercial speech, and unusual forms of expression such as T-shirts and campaign spending. It is a story of hard choices, heroic judges, and the fascinating and eccentric defendants who forced the legal system to come face to face with one of America's great founding ideas.</div></div>

<br /><b><i>Secrets, Bargains, and Ambition...Love was never part of the plan.</i></b><br /><br />I am Tara Zain. Human rights attorney, Commander to my colleagues in international affairs, and fiancee to the most powerful man in the country. I've learned love is a useless distraction. Money and status are the true motivators, and powerful alliances are much more important than romantic entanglements. My passion is my work, and nothing, not even the promise of happily-ever-after, will keep me from accomplishing my mission. This is why I've made a bargain with the one man who shattered my heart years ago. He's proposed that I stand by his side and foster the beginning of a new political dynasty.<br /><br /><i>But I have secrets.</i><br /><br />Secrets that could destroy not only this man and the passion we've rekindled but the very laws of the nation he has sworn to uphold.<br /><br />I am Tara Zain. Future First Lady of the United States of America and COMMANDER.

I've played the game, battled my colleagues, and come out on top. <br /><br /><i>Everything I've ever wanted is within my grasp. </i><br /><br />Then why did I fall for a man whose touch consumed me to the point of forgetting my goals? Why did he have to be my political opponent for the highest office in the Nation?  Now, I must decide between a road that is clear and could lead to the White House and another that is unknown and has the potential to leave me in shambles. <br /><br />I am Jacinta Camden. Presidential hopeful and United States SENATOR.
