  CJR - The Press and the World of Money, by John Quirt
Quirt recalls, for example, a story he did for CBS on third world indebtedness and the policies of the World Bank and its affiliate, the International Development Association (before third world indebtedness erupted into the major bank story of much of the '80s) -- and to which William Paley, the network's chairman, objected.
Although CBS executives liked the idea of expanded business coverage in theory, they were gun-shy, Quirt concludes, when it came to stories that were less than enthusiastic about "their peers" in the money world.
Quirt mentions Ben Bagdikian in a footnote -- much that is controversial or intriguing appears in a footnote -- but nowhere does he indicate that he has given serious consideration to the case Bagdikian makes in The Media Monopoly.

 Texas Tech University Press -- The Quirt and the Spur: Vanishing Shadows of the Texas Frontier
In 1909, former frontier judge and editor Edgar Rye introduced The Quirt and the Spur: Vanishing Shadows of the Texas Frontier to a reading public hungry for stories of this vanishing world.
Peopled by the desperate and the hopeful, the adventurous and the opportunistic, The Flat was a place in the tradition of Dodge City and Tombstone, towns that became synonymous with western violence and lawlessness.
Indeed, he anticipated that his more exacting reader would find his yarns to be “all wool and a yard wide.” Nevertheless, in The Quirt and the Spur Rye successfully grasped at those “vanishing shadows” of the frontier past and set them down for posterity.
