WHAT IS A NEWSPAPER!
"Wuxtry poiper! Poiper!"
You select your favorite journal and
give the urchin a cent A business
transaction pure and simple, is it
not? You wanted the news and you
paid for the privilege of reading it.
On that basis, a newspaper has
filled its whole part of the bargain
when it gathers all the news, writes
it attractively and prints the various
items in due proportion. A few pa
pers still cling to this idea. j
isut that is not all a newspapers
duty. The publication is after all, not
a private business, but a semi-public
institution. It has numerous privil
eges conferred upon it. It is allow
ed freedom of utterance: it is granted
cheap passage through the mail; its
reporters rush in everywhere in the
search for news in the making.
The paper holds no franchise, yet
it has an immense power for good or
evil. More than any private individ
ual is it in a position to guard the
public interests. The paper that wil
fully lends Itself to the forces of cor
ruption needs no condemnation; but
the journal that, seeing evil all about
It, makes no effort to improve con
ditions, is only a degree higher than
its openly corrupt contemporary.
"I serve" should be the motto
blazoned on every newspaper office in
the land. "I buy and Fell news" is
not the emblem of a journalist, but of
