By way of background: Jim O'Shea is the author of a new book, "The Deal from Hell," which describes the merger of the Times Mirror and Tribune media companies and how that business transaction contributed to the downfall of several of the country's most prominent newspapers. Among them: the Baltimore Sun, Chicago Tribune, and Los Angeles Times. O'Shea is a former managing editor of the Chicago Tribune and former editor-in-chief of the Los Angeles Times.
