Product Overview

1924. A collection of editorials by Brisbane, the highest-paid newspaperman of his day. In the early 1930's William Randolph Hearst paid him two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year to write a six-day-a-week column entitled Today, which appeared on the front page of the Hearst tabloids and hundreds of other newspapers in the United States. Brisbane was astonishingly prolific: it is calculated that he had written 25 million words in 53 years. He was a master of superficiality and platitudes; his columns required the minimum effort on the part of readers; no long words, no opinions that would bewilder them.
