Ch 15 1. Heartbreaking tear-jerking stories of sex murder, and abuse, all written from the feminine perspective. These were the hallmarks of sob stories, and the women who wrote them were known as Sob Sisters. Women were not taken as seriously as men in Journalism in the 1900’s. (p.294) 2. This chapter doesn’t really talk about the origins of the Prize so I don’t really know what to say. We all know Joseph Pulitzer was just one of the biggest newspaper publishers and started the contest to promote and reward journalism and all the other categories it covers. 3. Marie Curie was the first female to win in 1903 for her work in physics. (I couldn’t even find her in the index) 4. Tabloid Journalism and Jazz Journalism. Jazz Journalism presented information in a staid, middle-of-the-road fashion that became the quality standard for Journalism. (p.286) 5. Pulitzers New Your World, the largest newspaper in the United States in 1897, with combined morning and evening circulations of one million copies. His family sold the paper after his death and it consolidated with Roy Howards Telegraph. (p.289)
