"The span of the 20th century saw newspapers take on enormous importance in the dissemination of information and opinions throughout US society, and then gradually subside from its role as the primary source of news and information to just one among many. Wallace examines the significant trends in American newspaper journalism, including the proliferation of wire services, the development of the African-American press, investigative reporting, and digital developments."
