Summary
"Theodore Roosevelt, accidental president, and Joseph Bishop, newspaper editor, met when the future Rough Rider was police commissioner of New York City. Bishop hitched his wagon to the politician's star and used his editorial pages in New York papers to buttress Roosevelt's initiatives first as police commissioner, then as governor and president. Here is a new and important look at one of America's most important leaders and the man who helped him achieve his goals. The Lion and the Journalist is a remarkable story of mutual loyalty and dedication that ranges from police corruption on the streets of New York, through days of boldness and courage in the White House and beyond, to ambition and hardship in the jungles of Panama"--Provided by publisher
