Summary
  • In this definitive work, the author chronicles 130 years of the Chicago Tribune from it's start in 1847, relying on files from the newspaper and interviews with key personnel past and present
  • Spawned in the controversies of the pre-Civil War years, the Chicago Tribune time and again during its rise to prominence among America's newspapers took stands that made it a journal people loved or hated- or just loved to hate. The paper has tangled with the likes of Al Capone and Big Bill Thompson and once called Henry Ford an anarchist. It has battled crime, corruption, and immorality, and upheld the American Way. The paper has taken pride in its journalistic coups, such as beating the Government Printing Office to the streets with the entire text of President Nixon's Watergate transcripts. And it has been embarrassed by its share of gaffes, such as the famous "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN" headline. But whatever it has been called, it has always been exciting and has long been influential in the life of the nation.-- Book Jacket
