Literary Birthday - 29 April
Happy Birthday, William Randolph Hearst, born 29 April 29 1863, died 14 August 1951
Quotes
You must keep your mind on the objective, not the obstacle.
Don’t be afraid to make a mistake, your readers might like it.
All work and no play may make Jim a dull boy, but no work and all play makes Jim all kinds of a jackass.
News is something somebody doesn’t want printed; all else is advertising.
Try to be conspicuously accurate in everything, pictures as well as text. Truth is not only stranger than fiction, it is more interesting.
It is a good thing that women are so easily manipulated. Otherwise, most of us wouldn’t be here.
Putting out a newspaper without promotion is like winking at a girl in the dark — well intentioned, but ineffective
You can crush a man with journalism.
Hearst was an American newspaper publisher who created the largest newspaper and magazine business in the world. His methods profoundly influenced American journalism after he engaged in a circulation war with Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World that led to the creation of yellow journalism— sensationalized stories of dubious veracity.
