The memoir, Finding the News: Adventures of a Young Reporter, tells Peter Copeland’s fast-paced story of becoming a distinguished journalist. Starting in Chicago at the City News Bureau, Copeland went on to work as a war correspondent in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa before covering national politics in Washington, D.C., where he rose to be bureau chief of the E.W. Scripps Company. Full of behind-the-scenes stories about learning the trade, Copeland’s inspiring account builds into a heartfelt defense of journalism “done the right way” and serves as a call to action for today’s reporters.
