AMERICAN MASTERS: “JOSEPH PULITZER: VOICE OF THE PEOPLE”
April 12, 2019  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
The newspaper editor and publisher whose name now is attached to the most prestigious honor in print journalism is profiled in this new American Masters special – which goes back to the Spanish-American war of the 1890s to examine how Pulitzer, as well as his media rival William Randolph Hearst, got swept into the riptide of “yellow journalism.” Or, to use a more modern bit of nomenclature, “fake news.” For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.
