Some Newspapers and Newspaper-Men

Excerpt

These studies in current daily journalism, most of which have appeared in The Nation, are less haphazard than may seem at first sight. The various journals selected were chosen less for geographical reasons than to illustrate the prevailing tendencies in the rake's progress of our press, due to the commercialization of what should be the noblest of professions. Fortunately it has not been necessary to record only retrogression; notably in the non-profit- making Forward of New York is there the promise of a way of avoiding what to many seems the inevitable subordination of journalistic public service to sordid money-making. In the Minnesota Star we also have an experiment worth watching. That a way of escape will be found the author has no doubt. It is inconceivable that so great a Republic should find itself unable to secure for its voters that stream of unbiased and truthful news without which an electorate can be neither informed nor intelligent.

Several studies of bygone editors and journals have been added to illustrate the change, in newspapers, methods, and men, which has come over the trade.
