Merrick and deadwood’s information society Shawn McIntosh I love reading the Black Hills Pioneer, you know. … I could read that all day. David Milch It is information—not gold—that is the most valuable commodity in Deadwood in 1876. Although gold is obviously the impetus that created Deadwood, by July 1876, when the series picks up the story of the mining boomtown, information already plays a far more important role in determining wealth and power in the “camp” than actual mining rights. In fact, one of the main storylines of the first season revolved entirely around the issue of information and its use or misuse, and this theme continued at a much larger scale in the second season.
Deadwood creator David Milch resurrects Wild Bill, both the man and the legend, for his HBO drama, however, and weaves fact and fiction together seamlessly, like the pinstripes on Al Swearengen’s suit, to bring meaning to what may have been a mindless act of violence. Within the context of the show, the moment is elevated to almost mythic proportions and takes on a more profound significance, as it puts forces in motion that may well tip the scales in that larger moral gamble that plays out on the town’s muddy streets and in its seedy backrooms.
Other Deadwood residents seem to mistrust him or avoid him as his very existence threatens the value of that most precious of Deadwood commodities—information. Once a story appears in the Pioneer, its worth as an information commodity greatly decreases as that information is shared. In most cases by the time Merrick gets the information to print it has already been utilized by the powers-that-be and as such is already devalued, somewhat like stock tips that get sent to large-scale institutional investors before being leaked to the business press.
