McClatchy is hard at work on a collector's edition book on Barack Obama to be published just after the inauguration, and the company is offering a special deal to subscribers. Here are some excerpts from the exciting announcement:
A New Book from McClatchy Newspapers
The story of Barack Obama's journey to the presidency. This 144-page, hard-cover, full-color book collects the best writing and photographs from McClatchy's Washington Bureau and its 30 newspapers. It presents one of the most compelling portraits ever of this unprecedented election.
Reserve your copy today! (Book cover shown at left is prototype only; cover will likely change.)
The book's title comes from Obama's speech on race given in Philadelphia:
"I have brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, uncles and cousins, of every race and every hue, scattered across three continents, and for as long as I live, I will never forget that in no other country on Earth is my story even possible."
About the book:
- Contains 144 pages and measures a large 9 ¾ x 11 ½
inches, hard-cover with dust jacket, and full-color throughout.
- Coverage begins before the primaries, looks at the
presidential debates and key issues, and includes the Inauguration in January.
- Includes all 30 newspapers' front pages from the day
following the election in an extraordinary gallery.

This outstanding book will fit in with the Obama posters and Obama mugs McClatchy is selling, too. (Funny, I don't remember McClatchy selling Bush books and posters and mugs in 2000 and 2004.) I know alot of you thought McClatchy was about Speaking Truth to Power and reporting the news and all that. No: McClatchy has positioned itself into a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.
