Americaâ€™s story has always been best told in its newspapers. From the local and mundaneâ€“ crime blotters, crop prices, and Sunday sermonsâ€“ to the Federalist Papers and Watergate, the press has played an outsized role in our nationâ€™s culture and history. Now in its fifth hardcover printing, Deadline Artists celebrates the relevance of the newspaper column through the simple power of excellent writing. It is an inspiration for a new generation of writersâ€” whether their medium is print or digitalâ€”looking to learn from the best of their predecessors.Contributors include: Jimmy Breslin, Ernie Pyle, Dorothy Thompson, Thomas L.
