The Deal From Hell tells the story of the LA Times' acquisition by the massive media conglomerate Tribune Co. in 2000 and the deal's repercussions. O'Shea, as seasoned as journalists come, presents a fascinating narrative on newspapers as businesses and the changing role of journalists in the 21st century.
