This chapter describes the coverage of the trial for the racial discrimination suit filed by four black journalists against the New York Daily News, the nation’s largest-circulation metropolitan newspaper. Because of this unprecedented trial, the stakes for the newspaper industry were high. What followed in the next nine weeks was the legal equivalent of a bloody street brawl in which character flaws on both sides would be ripped open and exposed. Nevertheless, plaintiffs David Hardy, a political reporter; Steven W. Duncan, an assistant news editor; Joan Shepard, Manhattan cultural affairs editor; and Causewell Vaughan, a copy editor, pressed on. They believed theirs was a compelling and righteous case.

Keywords:   New York, Daily News, black journalists, race discrimination, David Hardy, Steven W. Duncan, Joan Shepard, Causewell Vaughan
