Santa Fe Living Treasures: Our Elders, Our Hearts, Volume II 1994 - 2008,by Richard McCord.
Richard McCord, Author Richard McCord entered journalism with a handwritten, loose-leaf classroom newspaper tacked to the fifth-grade bulletin board of his elementary school in Georgia. He was editor of his college newspaper in Tennessee, then took his first professional job at Newsday in New York, named by Time magazine as one of America's 10 best newspapers. After four years there he grew restless for adventure and wide-open spaces, and came to Santa Fe in 1971. He worked briefly for the daily New Mexican, then started the weekly Santa Fe Reporter in 1974. For 14 years he was editor and co-publisher, before selling the newspaper in 1988. During his tenure, the Reporter won more than 200 awards for excellence, more than 40 on the national level, often in competition with large dailies. Categories included general excellence, features, art, sports, advertising, photography, investigations, editorials, public service, special supplements, news writing, columns, medical writing, business writing and headlines. The National Newspaper Association named the Reporter America's second-best weekly. His editorials took top honors from the New Mexico and Albuquerque press associations, second place from the Scripps Howard Foundation, and runner-up for a Pulitzer Price. The international Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors gave McCord its lifetime achievement award. This is his third book.

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.
