Montana Historical Society Press,2006.
The first book devoted to Montana's long history of industrial newspaper ownership & the consequences for democracy. The work also reveals the costs paid by owners & their journalists, whose credibility eroded as their increasingly constricted newspapers lapsed into ambivalence & indifference. A timeless study of the conflict between commerce & the notion of a free & independent press. 408 pages, black & white photos, paper
