If you love newspapers and hate seeing what has happened to them this book may make you cry For it is the story of newspapers in their heyday when Sunday papers had 72 pages and comic strip artists were paid 25000 to 85000 a year Current employees of Tribune papers really might cry because this book covers the years when the Tribune was backed by a bottomless money pit Tribune employees received medical aid free dental cleanings life insurance silver flatware as wedding gifts home financing pensions bonuses and most important job security There was even a drunk bank for those who needed money the day after a bender Unfortunately the newsboys did not have such blessed lives they were sometimes maimed by competing newspapers That is one of the most interesting parts of the book where Ms McKinney shows how the Chicago mob was created by the fierce competition between the Chicago newspapersThis of course is also the story of the Medills particularly Robert McCormick Joe Patterson and Cissy Patterson There is a family tree in the beginning of the book which I did not find that helpful The final copy of the book as opposed to the ARC has 16 pages of photos and those are probably way helpful in keeping everyone straight Women in the family were than once called she devils and they tended to marry very strangely but it is still a great story of powerful women in the newspaper industry Cissy Patterson however ends up very badly due to very bad choices in her personal life It is also not the happiest of endings for Robert McCormick and Joe Patterson but what exciting privileged hardworking lives they all livedNote I received a free ARC of this book from Vine
