Summary
"The former chief political correspondent for The New York Times Magazine brilliantly revisits the Gary Hart affair and looks at how it changed forever the intersection of American media and politics. In 1987, Gary Hart--articulate, dashing, refreshingly progressive--seemed a shoo-in for the Democratic nomination for president and led George H.W. Bush comfortably in the polls. And then: rumors of marital infidelity, an indelible photo of Hart and a model snapped near a fatefully named yacht (Monkey Business), and it all came crashing down in a blaze of flashbulbs, the birth of 24-hour news cycles, tabloid speculation, and late-night farce. Matt Bai shows how the Hart affair marked a crucial turning point in the ethos of political media--and, by extension, politics itself--when candidates' 'character' began to draw more fixation than their political experience. Bai offers a poignant, highly original, and news-making reappraisal of Hart's fall from grace (and overlooked political legacy) as he makes the compelling case that this was the moment when the paradigm shifted--private lives became public, news became entertainment, and politics became the stuff of Page Six"--

Summary
In 1987, Gary Hart was the leading Democratic candidate for President. When a reporter photographed Hart in an apparently adulterous situation, Hart's sex life rather than his political abilities became the main story. In All the Truth is Out, journalist Matt Bai analyzes Hart's political qualifications in contrast to the scandal and describes the nature of political reporting since then. Bai concludes that journalists now focus more on candidates' personal morality than on their political stands and governing abilities, robbing Americans of information that would help identify the more qualified candidates. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
