Roger Ebert’s love letter to his beloved, bankrupt Chicago Sun-Times


Two thumbs up, and more if you have ‘em, for legendary film critic Roger Ebert’s touching, hilarious and utterly joyous chronicle of life at his beloved, bankrupt Chicago Sun-Times. It’s a newer rendition of The Front page, but with real, larger-than-life characters, from Mike Royko to Ann Landers to Ebert himself. It’s all here: the reasons why your Momma warned you to never become a reporter—and the reasons why you should never listen to your Momma. Will journalism ever be this much fun again? We can only hope.
