A Yellow Journalist

A Yellow Journalist by Miriam Michelson
By: (1870-1942)

"Yellow journalism" was a term coined in the late 19th century to describe sensationalized, exaggerated, and sometimes even fabricated news stories designed to sell newspapers. In "A Yellow Journalist," author Miriam Michelson explores the world of journalism during this tumultuous period in American history.

The story follows the ambitious and determined protagonist, Grace Osborne, as she navigates the cutthroat world of journalism in San Francisco. Grace is a fascinating character, whose drive and determination to succeed in a male-dominated industry make her both relatable and admirable.

Michelson expertly weaves historical events and figures into the narrative, creating a rich backdrop for Grace's story. Through Grace's eyes, readers are given a glimpse into the challenges and triumphs of early female journalists, as well as the ethical dilemmas they faced in pursuit of a scoop.

Overall, "A Yellow Journalist" is a compelling and insightful look at the world of journalism during a time of great change. Michelson's vivid writing and well-developed characters make this a must-read for anyone interested in history, journalism, or women's studies.

Book Description:
Rhoda Massey is a young, sharp reporter for a daily newspaper in San Francisco. After proving herself an astute and fearless investigator on her first big story, she spends most of her waking hours running down leads and doing (almost) anything it takes to produce headline grabbing tales and to be the first one to do so. She must compete with her male colleagues where she works but also with those from other newspapers. Rhoda discovers it useful to be pretty and small in stature (great for eavesdropping from tight and unusual locations) but it's her shrewd mind and her nose for news that propel her to pursue stories in dangerous places and, sometimes, from dangerous characters. Just how far is she prepared to go as a ‘yellow’ journalist who wants the truth and at what price to her integrity? Then there’s the respected and handsome reporter, Ted Thompson, from a rival newspaper. Will he have a place in Rhoda’s life?
