Library Journal - Library Journal
In this 1963 title, Faber offered an in-depth analysis of how Ochs transformed a second-rate paper into possibly the most-respected and -influential news publication in the world. This edition has been updated and includes a new introduction by the author.

YAThis updated and revised edition of the 1963 title appears during the centennial of Ochs's purchase of The New York Times. His was an extraordinary life of honor, foresight, acumen, and accomplishment, coupled with the joys of a loving family. This "Horatio Alger" biography provides information at a fast pace in an easy, readable, and courtly style. History comes alive in the accounts of the newspaper's role in covering the sinking of the Titanic; Peary's expedition to the North Pole; and the decision not to print an inflammatory interview with Kaiser Wilhelm II that would have provoked a public outcry to go to war. Ochs's relationships with Hearst and Pulitzer shed light on newspaper history. Perfect for secondary students interested in American history and good nonfiction, this book tells an amazing story of a trailblazer's love for and commitment to publishing "All the News That's Fit to Print."Judy Sokoll, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
