Plain Dealing: Cleveland Journalists Tell Their Stories
Download/link to full text
“Plain Dealing” is a book of essays by 25 accomplished Cleveland-area journalists. It’ a book of stories, many never told before. It’s a first-person account of journalism in Cleveland, life in the newsroom, the issues and events these journalists covered, and the characters they worked with and met.
The stories begin in the 1950s and go up to 2013, covering the post-World War II era through the days when Cleveland was a three daily newspaper city, then two, then one. The book ends with the mass layoffs and resulting decline that ushered in "digital-first" age.
