America's story has always been best told in its newspapers. From the local and mundane-crime blotters, crop prices, and Sunday sermons-to the Federalist Papers and Watergate, the press has played an outsized role in our nation's culture and history. Newspapers in America have always been the crucible where our passions and debates are tried by the only judge this nation respects: public opinion. At a time of great transition in the news media, Deadline Artistscelebrates the relevance of the newspaper column through the simple power of excellent writing. It is an inspiration for a new generation of writers--whether their medium is print or digital-looking to learn from the best of their predecessors. Contributors include: Benjamin Franklin, Damon Runyan, Dave Barry, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, Hunter S. Thompson, Jimmy Breslin, Langston Hughes, Maureen Dowd, Mike Royko, Anna Quindlen, Thomas L. Friedman, and Walter Lippmann.
