Abstract

Nowhere are the differences between journalism and history more evident than in assessments of the presidency of the United States. If journalism is generously described as "history in a hurry," so is it shortsighted and sloppy as it lurches forward, gathering news in bits and pieces, coming to conclusions based on short-term accomplishments and the court of public opinion.
