The Scripps Newspapers Go to War, 1914-18


In an age before radio and television, E. W. Scripps's twenty-one newspapers, major newswire service, and prominent news syndication service composed the first truly national media organization in the United States. In The Scripps Newspapers Go to War, Dale Zacher details the scope, organization, and character of the mighty Scripps empire during World War I and reveals how the pressures of the market, government censorship, propaganda, and progressivism transformed news coverage. _x000B_This volume presents the first systematic examination of a major newspaper operation during World War I and provides fascinating accounts of its struggles with competition, attending to patriotic duties, and internal editorial dissent. The book also considers the newspapers' relationship with President Woodrow Wilson, American neutrality, the move to join the war, and fallout from disillusionment over the actuality of war. Ultimately, Zacher shows how the progressive spirit and political independence at the Scripps newspapers came under attack and was changed forever during the era._x000B_
