The Deal

The Deal from Hell
Dog bites man?  Man bites dog?  Newspaper man writes about newspapers.  James O’Shea rose through the ranks to become Editor of the LA Times.  He was shuffled out of his job and then wrote his tell-all book about the business: The Deal From Hell

O’Shea had a fantastic story full of interesting characters; sadly, he desperately needed an editor of his own.  His book lacked focus and often became bogged down in tedious details and unnecessary repetition.  I felt it was a real waste.  I was deeply interested in this story and the problems facing today’s newspapers, and yet this author missed the mark.

An update on this: Why We Still Need Jouralism.
