Monday, September 26, y Jour 413 History of Journalism The Beginning of  Modern Journalism SUMMARY  This was the time where newspapers were starting to write stories that got more to the point  instead of writing stories that would sell. Even though we see that today as a form of journalism  it is definitely not the newspaper style. Horace Greeley started The New Yorker and this was his first successful print endeavor. He also was the first person to suggest posting actual content  instead of stories that did not matter. Entries such as economic theory and policy was written by the likes of Horace Greeley and Henry J. Raymond. The papers that we talked about on the  other notes are still existent and they are still considered a penny press. It seems that after all of the political turmoil newspapers have decided to become more trustworthy sources.  Horace Greeley ­ Family went through economic hardship when he was only 15 years old and had to  make a living for himself. With only 10 bucks in his pocket he went to New York City  when he was 20 years old and went to labor unions. 2 years later he started a printing press.  ­ He was against slavery, believed in free soil and was a liberal Republican as well as   Whig.  ­ Later he started The New Yorker which was his first successful print endeavor from  1834­1841  • A literary journal that is a distant relative to another.  • Greeley’s take on it was by incorporating literary figures and posting actual content  that could be respected. ­ From 1838­1839 He worked for The Firm. This was called the Firm of Seward, Weed  and Greeley. The belief was that if you were to become the leader of New York, you  would own the world.  • Whigs ­ 1840—Harrison (W) (The highest voter turnout in American History, 80% of  electorate) 1 Monday, September 26, y ­ 1844—Clay       (L) ­ 1848—Taylor    (W) ­ 1854—Scott     (L) “Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too” ­ This is the most famous campaign slogan in American History. This really helped this  unknown candidate get voted into the presidency.  The Log Cabin Newspaper ­ The highest circulation that they ever got was more than 80,000 weekly.  The New York Tribune ­ started by Horace Greeley ­ The Tribune is recognized as the ultimate collection of literary content in the entire  country.  ­ In 1842 The Tribune column by Albert Brisbane advocated Fourierism. ­ All this was about being able to transform daily life and had this vision of the world  that was too beautiful to believe.  ­ He started the concept “Manifest Destiny” 1850 ­ Greeley decided to link fourierism to anti­slavery and slaves in the south were  considered workers in the North.  ­ According to Greeley he believed that slavery existed wherever humans were  working with one another. This idea is closer to Marxism in the 1850’s and 1860’s. 2 Monday, September 26, y Henry J. Raymond ­ He graduated from college at 18 and was already recognized as one of the best  editors reporters and editors of their time. He went straight away to work for Horace  Greeley. They are both Whigs but they have different philosophies. ­ He worked in 1841 for Greeley and left shortly after. In 1843 he worked for Colonel  James Watson Webb at the Courier Inquirer. Both Greeley and Raymond were able  to collaborate on a project even though they are still disagreeable with each other.  ­ Over a span of 8 months there were 32 different entries in economic theory and  policy between The New York Tribune and Courier Inquirer.  ­ He died on June 18 1869 because of a stroke after having a fantastic night with a  young lady. 1848: The Year of Hope? ­ The second Whig Zachary Taylor died because he ate bad food. The Whigs couldn't  keep it together. 1851, The New York Times ­ The paper finally decided that they wanted to stop covering a bunch of nonsense and instead get to the point of the story. This wasn’t the end of sensationalism, rather it  was a new kind of newspaper. It is also still a penny press. The Fight Against Boss Tweed Late 1860’s - early 1870’s ­ The New York Times is still a family owned business. it is still one of the media giants that is owned by only one family. During this time period people would only buy the  newspaper because of the cartoons in them. ­ The New York Times was also known as “newspaper of record” 3 Monday, September 26, y The Modern New York Times ­ In 2001 they won 7 Pulitzer Prizes but lost a bunch of great writers and editors. They  have been in a weird downward spiral since 9/11 4
