I've now ordered the book the "The Chain Gang: One Newspaper versus the Gannett Empire" by Richard McCord (if you're not taking advantage of all the cheap used books available online in seconds, you should--it's wonderful; order the book and help with the discussion).Here are some blurbs:
"A devastating pattern of corporate sleaze. . . . There is no question that McCord has the goods on Gannett, and he is one of the few journalists in America bold enough to reveal them."-- Newsday
"A masterful job of making history exciting as well as informative. . . . A great page-turner. . . . An authoritative and entertaining read, and also historically important."-- Los Angeles Times
"McCord has the jackhammer convictions of a born editorial writer. . . . The raw emotion he brings to his battle against Gannett makes The Chain Gang affecting as well as informative."-- New York Times
"McCord has battled the Gannett newspaper giant twice and lived to tell about it in this fascinating book. . . . This book is nearly impossible to put down, for the media curious or those who just like a good scrap."-- Publishers Weekly
"They're closing in on me, Dick, and I'm afraid they're going to get me," said Frank Wood, publisher of the Green Bay News-Chronicle, in a phone call to his friend and colleague, Richard McCord."They're closing in on me, Dick, and I'm afraid they're going to get me," said Frank Wood, publisher of the Green Bay News-Chronicle, in a phone call to his friend and colleague, Richard McCord.
...
As editor and publisher of the nationally distinguished weekly Santa Fe Reporter, McCord had successfully fended off Gannett's "Operation Demolition" when it moved into town.
...
"McCord has done something marvelous with this.He's taken a deeply disturbing nationwide trend and put it on a small midwestern stage with real characters.The Chain Gang's message needs to be heard by as many Americans as read newspapers.Already Gannett's monopoly tactics have impoverished communities across the country.McCord is one man fighting back, coolly, rationally, creatively, and stubbornly.
...
In between, Richard McCord's "Chain Gang" is provocative, part autobiography, part broadside.His target is Gannett, America's largest newspaper group and, in McCord's view, an evil empire.McCord's personal tale engages, despite lapses into melodrama.Idealistic, passionate, obsessive, McCord recounts his boyhood in rural Georgia and early years as a Newsday reporter.
