From the Publisher:

"A thoroughly welcomed screed against bloodless avarice in the newspaper business."--Newsweek

From Library Journal:

Squires was the media spokesman for the first part of Ross Perot's bid for the presidency. But for nearly 30 years until late 1989, he was on the other side of the fence, including editorships of the Chicago Tribune and the Orlando Sentinel. Ultimately, this is the story of why he's no longer an editor, despite his enviable accomplishments. Using his career as a framework, Squires chronicles the transformation of newspapers in the corporate world. He rattles off advertising, circulation, and profit numbers and sketches several candid and unflattering portraits of newspaper executives, mainly colleagues at the Tribune Company. You will learn why that corporation's purchase of the Chicago Cubs caused an uproar in the newsroom and just what is the "dirty little secret" of the newspaper business. A worthy companion to Ben Bagdikian's The Media Monopoly (Beacon, 1990. 3d ed.; a fourth edition is scheduled for 1993), this is recommended for journalism and media collections.
