    David Halberstam

    David Halberstam (April 10, 1934–April 23, 2007) was an American Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author known for his early work on the Vietnam War and his later sports journalism.

    Halberstam graduated from Harvard University with a degree in journalism in 1955 and started his career writing for the Daily Times Leader in West Point, Mississippi. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, writing for The Tennessean in Nashville, Tennessee, he covered the beginnings of the American Civil Rights Movement.

He is interviewed in the 1968 documentary film on the Vietnam War entitled In the Year of the Pig.

    Thousands of readers began The Best and the Brightest feeling that the U.S. must pursue the war in Vietnam until victory was achieved, but became convinced by Halberstams book that the U.S. could not win and therefore should withdraw from Vietnam.

    After publication of The Best and the Brightest in 1972, Halberstam plunged right into another big book and in 1979 published an informative book about some of the major media outlets in America. The Powers That Be gave compe
