Abstract:

In this volume, veteran journalist Edmond D. Coblentz has collected some of the most salubrious sayings of successful newspaper men. The selections are wide ranging--in quality, in thought, in writing, and in emphasis--but the one common element is the success of the authors. Journalism classes will value this anthology, for it contains the opinions of newspaper publishers, editors, and writers and address such things as newspaper integrity, journalistic independence, journalistic writing, features, wire services, specialization, columnists, libel cases, the fascination of the job itself, and the value of character in a newspaper. All the contributors are American, saving Lord Northcliffe, developer of popular journalism in England.
