In early April, AAN News linked to The Economist's rave review of Chicago Reader staff writer Steve Bogira's book, "Courtroom 302: A Year Behind the Scenes in an American Criminal Courthouse." On May 1, both The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times ran glowing reviews of their own. The former calls the book an "intimate portrait of a judge and his work," while the latter says that "Bogira is an inspiring reminder of what investigative reporting can and should do to keep our national institutions cleaner and better than they are."
