Profile of the new era press lord, Brian Tierney

I don’t often read long pieces on the web, but this profile starts with a lede from Citizen Kane, and it’s about Brian Tierney, who does come across as a complex and fascinating fellow, so over the course of the day, I digested this eight-link page turner.

Tierney seems to embody in one person the good and the bad of turning over metro papers to local, private owners. He’s a visionary and ambitious, but seemingly mercurial and maybe a tad less than honest.

As the article says, kind of like the press barons of bygone eras.
