About the Book Two of the last great newspapermen, Tim Ghianni and Rob Dollar, take readers back to the days when newspapers actually mattered in America... When journalism was about making a difference, not making a huge profit at the expense of the reader... When reporters and editors searched for the truth, wherever it took them and at whatever cost.
Ghianni and Dollar - the Mickey Mantle and Billy Martin of the newspaper world, with nearly sixty years of experience between them at daily newspapers in Tennessee, Kentucky and North Carolina - earned reputations in their careers as award-winning "outlaw" journalists who always stood up to wrongdoers and wrong doing.
This book is a story about their love for newspapers... What went wrong... And why. It's also about the two long ago murders that continue to haunt them to this day.
Their story is dark. It's funny. It's honest. It's brutal. But most of all, it's the truth - and in the end, that's all that really matters to two old newspapermen who never backed down.
