American Journalists

Donald A. Ritchie

  • Biographies of well-known journalists, from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Paine to Walter Cronkite and Rupert Murdoch, appear alongside some who may be less familiar
  • In 60 essays, this volume profiles American journalists from colonial times to the present—reporters, editors, publishers, photographers, and broadcasters
  • Illustrations, fact boxes, and quotations from the subjects themselves make this volume an indispensable reference for students of American history as well as a fascinating read.
