Jon's book, "Watergate's Legacy and the Press: The Investigative Impulse," was published in 2011 by the Northwestern University Press as part of Medill’s “Visions of the American Press” series. The Journal of American History described it as “the best history of American investigative journalism to date.” Leonard Downie Jr., former executive editor of the Washington Post, called it “a very readable, deeply researched and wisely analyzed assessment of American investigative reporting before and after Watergate.
