Summary
Reveals how an unheralded young newspaperman from San Francisco arrived in New York and created the most successful daily of his time, pushing the medium to an unprecedented level of influence and excitement, and leading observers to wonder if newspapers might be more powerful than kings and popes and presidents. Journalist Kenneth Whyte offers a window onto the media world at the turn of the 20th century as he chronicles Hearst's rivalry with Joseph Pulitzer, the undisputed king of New York journalism, in the most spectacular newspaper war of all time. They battled head-to-head through the thrilling presidential election campaign of 1896 and the Spanish-American War--a conflict that Hearst was accused of fomenting and that he covered in person. By 1898, Hearst had supplanted Pulitzer as the dominant force in New York publishing, and was on his way to becoming one of the most powerful private citizens in 20th-century America.--From publisher description
