E. W. Scripps and the Business of Newspapersby Gerald J. Baldasty
Pub. Date: 01/28/1999
Publisher: University of Illinois Press
Scripps's innovations included the creation of a telegraphic news service and an illustrated news features syndicate and the application of modern business practices to his chain of more than forty newspapers. His newspapers, aimed at working-class readers, were intended to be advocates for the common people and crusaded for lower streetcar fares, free textbooks for public school children, municipal ownership of utilities, pure food legislation, and many other causes.
