This chapter describes Andy Cooper’s weekly paper, called the City Sun, which promised an editorial environment that was compatible with advertisers’ interests without allowing them to dictate tone or content. The City Sun’s first issue was published on June 6, 1984. By the time the sixth edition was released in July, the paper received its first of many letters from Mayor Koch. Cooper’s City Sun also broke a taboo of other black newspapers—it criticized black politicians whenever it became convinced their behavior was venal, lazy, or self-serving.
