Joseph Pulitzer

Joseph Pulitzer

was a Hungarian-American newspaper publisher of the St. Louis Post Dispatch and the New York World
There is room in this great and growing city for a journal that is not only cheap but bright, not only bright but large, not only large but truly democratic-dedicated to the cause of the people rather than that of the purse potentates-devoted more to the news of the New than the Old World-that will expose all fraud and sham, fight all public evils and abuses-that will sever and battle for the people with earnest sincerity.More Joseph Pulitzer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A journalist is the lookout on the bridge of the ship of state. He notes the passing sail, the little things of interest that dot the horizon in fine weather. He reports the drifting castaway whom the ship can save. He peers through fog and storm to give warning of dangers ahead. He is not thinking of his wages or of the profits of his owners. He is there to watch over the safety and the welfare of the people who trust him.More Joseph Pulitzer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What a newspaper needs in its news, in its headlines, and on its editorial page is terseness, humor, descriptive power, satire, originality, good literary style, clever condensation and accuracy, accuracy, accuracy.More Joseph Pulitzer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light.More Joseph Pulitzer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery.More Joseph Pulitzer quotes [12/28/2011 09:12:14]
