Pulitzer was born in Hungary April 10, 1847 and died October 29, 1911. He introduced techniques of "new journalism" and eventually became an internationally known Democrat who crusaded against corruption and big business. He was in stiff competition with William Randolph Hearst's New York Journal and later opened the way to mass newspaper circulation and, yes, big business, in an industry where advertising revenue was king and whereby today, it may be accused of influencing or biasing journalistic fairness. Pulitzer died on his yacht off the coast of South Carolina near Jekyl Island. In his will, he left Columbia University's $2 million, which created the School of Journalism. If Joseph Pulitzer were alive today, I suspect, based on the bias in the media, he would ask for his money back, or it would kill him all over again.
The biggest danger to our society, however, is not the bias in the media--it's the power of the media in influencing political opinions and outcomes in our country. This video shows just that--and if it doesn't bother you, then you might just be a liberal.
The Gray Lady, The New York Times, is dead as we knew her. She has been molested and killed by the leftists who have done the same to the rest of the mainstream liberal media. In spite of Pulitzer's Democratic ties, I suspect he is rolling in his grave over the way so-called journalists are reporting their agenda. This is exactly the way revolutions begin--deviseness, compromising the press to print what the leader wants them to print, and circumventing the laws of the land--you know, and our Constitution, Bill of Rights. Little things like that.
If you are interested in terrorism and suspense, I have provided 2 links (below) for a hard copy (soft cover) edition and an eBook edition of my latest novel, Jihad Joe. It's a story about Zed Nill, a New York based reporter, taken hostage by Islamic terrorists. He must escape, or be beheaded the following day . . . the clock is ticking.
