Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People
(Canada-wide)

Thursday, March 4th, 2021 at 12:00 PM

His name is synonymous with best-of-the-best reporting and photojournalism, not to mention excellence in many artistic fields, but Joseph Pulitzer’s own story is, entertainingly, far from a portrait of uncomplicated virtue. Oren Rudavsky’s Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People is an excellent primer, not just on the man, but also the birth of the modern newspaper. Pulitzer spoke of “fake news” over 100 years ago and fought the dangers that the suppression of news had for a democracy long before our present threats to freedom of the press.
