Sally Quinn, Meet Upton Sinclair

Whittemore, Reed
November 1975
New Republic;11/8/75, Vol. 173 Issue 19, p21
The article focuses on television news presenter Sally Quinn, who left the CBS Television Network's morning news show to join the newspaper "Washington Post." She left the CBS on a bitter note and even tried to demolish it by writing the book "We're Going to Make You a Star." Quinn has been compared with author Upton Sinclair, who did have the same trouble with a malicious press that Quinn had, and did take on the enemy as she has, but then came out clean as she has not.
