Better readers, better newspapers

newspaper reader (2)“Many of the desirable improvements in the newspaper cannot be successfully achieved until the average level of education and intelligence of readers is raised.

“Nor can the newspaper accomplish its function of supplying the basis of sound public opinion unless citizens are willing to devote enough time and thought to newspaper reading to inform themselves thoroughly.

“Hence every movement to develop more intelligent, better-informed citizens deserves the newspaper work’s heartiest support.”

 

Willard Grosvenor Bleyer, “Newspaper Writing and Editing” (1913)
