"This biography of a newspaper is written to help fill the wide gap in historical information for the period when Washington, D.C., was the journalistic capital of the United States and government patronage was the financial base. It is an attempt to show that political journalism, rather than being the dark ages of the American newspaper, offered a higher quality information and interpretation of American society than at any other time in American history"--Preface.
