Justin Gardner History of Journalism It is too hard to summarize all of the events in journalism’s extensive history, because no one advancement is less important than another. We can name so many such as Gutenberg’s printing press, John Zenger, Ben Franklin, and so many more. Johan Gutenberg was probably the greatest inventor journalism has ever seen. Just to think how his simple invention of printing words onto a page would revolutionize the field is simply amazing. Although he may not have known it at the time, Gutenberg would become known as a hero in the journalism field. John Zenger was also a hero of his era and a hero to the field as well. He was the original one to publish print that went against the rule of the governor and the colony of NY. He revolutionized the way journalism can attack an individual for wrongdoing and use freedom of speech and press to its fullest extent, even though Zenger needed a little help from Ben Franklin.

Ben knew what the public was interested in reading about and went out there and delivered the stories. I must say Ben Franklin was definitely a genius of his time. I think is so much that can be written about the early pioneers of journalism, but not enough space. These men helped revolutionize the field and shape it to be what it is today. Not only were they heroes of their eras but also journalistic geniuses....

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
