PARK ROW by Allen Churchill


Email this review


An epitaph for ""newspaper row"" without excess of sentiment records the great papers and the men of the Fourth Estate who staffed and edited them. After Joseph Pulitzer's purchase of the World, it became a real threat to the typographically staid papers of the time. Circulation wars waged furiously as William Randolph Hearst's Herald, with unlimited money, bold ideas and little integrity created news and war when necessary. Great editors, reporters, stories of the time before the surviving dailies moved uptown and before the advent of the syndicate, are viewed sometimes with nostalgia, always in a lively and engaging fashion.
