“Gambling, Golf, and Gangsters”

February 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

An excellent New York Times piece on the murder of Oakland newspaper editor Chauncey Bailey is today’s must-read, at least if you (like me) are something of a journalism geek. The article’s one flaw is an all-too-brief namecheck of The Arizona Project, a multi-paper investigation into the 1976 assassination (via car bomb) of Arizona Republic reporter Don Bolles. Check out this 2006 retrospective on the Project, which was more heroic than genuinely successful.
