Book - 1990
Rate this:
This lively, readable survey describes how Canadian newspapers were born as a tool of government, gradually became a tool of various political parties, and freed themselves only after their popularity had been surpassed by television and other media. A valuable account of social history, this book traces the rise of Canadian newspapers from the Colonial Reform Press and their crucial political role through the western expansion and development of professional staff and reporters to the birth of independent papers.
