...Daily News Drop Dead. Columnist Jimmy Breslin has said reporters William Brink and Michael O'Neill should be credited with this headline. At the time, Pres. Gerald Ford has just promised to veto any bill to provide bailout funds to the nearly bankrupt city. The line that prompted the outrage was penned by David Gergen in what he thought was a draft version likely to be toned down ( The New York Times , August 29, 2004). “The people of this country will not be stampeded. They will not panic when a few desperate New York officials and bankers try scare New...

... Daily News ( 1875–1978 ) won wide circulation as the first local paper to print the news of Hayes 's nomination ( 1876 ). Although it was sensational and frequently issued extras, it was also known for its literary contributions, which included the “Sharps and Flats” column ( 1883–95 ) of Eugene Field . It was owned by Frank Knox ( 1931–44 ), who made it a Republican organ. After his death it became politically independent again, and in 1961 Marshall Field, Jr. , became publisher and...

...New York Daily News One of the top ten biggest-selling daily newspapers in the USA since its launch in 1919 as an experimental pioneer of the tabloid format. In March 1991 , following a series of disputes with print unions, it was sold by the Tribune Company of Chicago to the UK-based media mogul Robert Maxwell ( 1923–91 ). After Maxwell drowned just eight months later, the New York Daily News was acquired by Mortimer Zuckerman ( 1937–  ). As of 2013 , its online presence was second only to that of the New York Times for the number of unique...

...of congregations across the islands in which slaves expressed themselves in a biblical vernacular (if not a style) familiar to any British observer. News from slave communities quickly filtered back to all corners of Britain. The ultra- radical mulatto Robert Wedderburn ( c. 1763– c. 1835 ) in 1819 alleged that he received a continuous stream of slave news from the compounds of Kingston, Jamaica. Equally, news from Britain seeped into the slave quarters, bringing encouragement and the conviction that salvation was in sight; a sense that the local, white...

...with the printing in 1814 of The Times —the newspaper with the largest daily circulation—on a steam-powered machine ( see steam press ). The Times needed to print some 7,000 copies of the complete four-page newspaper overnight, something that was hardly possible with the use of the hand press. Using hand press technology, the outer forme for pages 1 and 4 (consisting only of *advertisements ) was printed during the previous day, and the inner forme for pages 2 and 3 (with news and comment) was printed during the night. At The Times , multiple copies...

...provide a glimpse of the relative cost of books at the end of the century. The Ise monogatari , one of the most popular works of classical literature, was usually published with illustrations in two volumes, and these rarely cost more than 2 monme ; by comparison, the normal daily wage of day-labourers at this time was 1.5 monme , so books were becoming more affordable. In the course of the 18 th century, some kinds of fiction were being produced in small illustrated booklets with poor calligraphy, and these sold for very low prices. Multi-volume works of...

...a number rising annually ( see stamp acts ; taxes on knowledge ). The acceleration of output in the 19 th century—linked directly to developments in the technology of print ( see 11 ), as well as to the repeal of taxes—ushered in the mass market of the next century. The Daily Mail became the first *Fleet Street paper to achieve circulation of a million copies for a single issue. At the same time, the newspaper moved beyond the orbit of the relatively conventional and sluggish book trade into its own industrial system. It was a sign of the times...

...the scientific community but also for the enlightened general reader. A few daily newspapers such as the Telégrafo mercantil del Río de la Plata ( 1801–5 ) and the Diario de México ( 1805–17 ) appeared at the turn of the century. It is generally assumed that these periodicals helped form an incipient public sphere: communities of readers were created and provided with a space in which awareness of their own country and of the situation within the Spanish empire was moulded on a daily basis. Such writings also gave shape to a feeling of American (or creole)...

...therefore, though they wish to express their sentiments in writing, have been unable to communicate. Considering this situation with compassion, I have newly devised twenty-eight letters. I wish only that the people will learn them easily and use them conveniently in their daily life. The new alphabet was the culmination of years of research by King Sejong and his scholar assistants. The *letterforms have a fascinating origin. Consonants are shown in shapes mirroring the position of oral organs during articulation of each sound: the ‘k’ sound being...

...Bible and an aunt's hymn-book. Yet her famous prophecies were also deeply influenced by half a dozen chap-book romances which she later transformed into Christian allegories, as well as by ubiquitous popular almanacs in the vein of Moore's and, more surprisingly, by detailed daily news stories which disciples read out to her. Underpinning all these was a wealth of oral lore and legend about witches, remedies, astrology, dreams, visions, portents, riddles, signs, and signatures which she had imbibed while growing up in the small Devon village of Gittisham....

...their audiences perpetuated established reading practices while simultaneously endowing print with new significance. In the 1930s , the Civilian Conservation Corps popularized the term ‘functional literacy’ to denote the skill necessary to read the materials pertinent to daily life. By 1947 , when the Census Bureau defined ‘functional illiterates’ as those with fewer than five years of schooling, only 6 per cent of Americans fell into that category, in contrast with 24 per cent in 1910 . Book readers were more likely to be from the middle or upper...
