St. Louis Post-Dispatch
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is the major regional newspaper in St. Louis, serving St. Louis City and County, St. Charles County, the Metro East and surrounding counties, it is the only daily newspaper in the city. The publication has received 18 Pulitzer Prizes; the paper is owned by Lee Enterprises of Davenport, which purchased Pulitzer, Inc. in 2005 in a cash deal valued at $1.46 billion. The paper is sold at $4 on Sundays and Thanksgiving Day; the price may be higher outside adjacent states. Sales tax is included at newsracks. On April 10, 1907, Pulitzer wrote what became known as the paper's platform: I know that my retirement will make no difference in its cardinal principles, that it will always fight for progress and reform, never tolerate injustice or corruption, always fight demagogues of all parties, never belong to any party, always oppose privileged classes and public plunderers, never lack sympathy with the poor, always remain devoted to the public welfare, never be satisfied with printing news, always be drastically independent, never be afraid to attack wrong, whether by predatory plutocracy or predatory poverty.
In 1878, Joseph Pulitzer purchased the bankrupt St. Louis Dispatch at a public auction and merged it with the St. Louis Evening Post to create the St. Louis Post and Dispatch, whose title was soon shortened to its current form, he appointed John A. Cockerill as the managing editor, its first edition, 4,020 copies of four pages each, appeared on December 12, 1878. In 1882, James Overton Broadhead ran for US Congress against John Glover; the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, at Cockerill's direction, ran a number of articles questioning Broadhead's role in a lawsuit between a gaslight company and the city. Broadhead's friend and law partner, Alonzo W. Slayback, publicly defended Broadhead, asserting that the St. Louis Post-Dispatch was nothing more than a "blackmailing sheet." The next day, October 13, 1882, Cockerill re-ran an offensive "card" by John Glover that the paper had published the prior November. Incensed, Slayback barged into Cockerill's offices at the paper demanding an apology. Cockerill killed Slayback.
A grand jury refused to indict Cockerill for murder, but the economic consequences for the paper were severe. Therefore, in May 1883, Pulitzer sent Cockerill to New York to manage the New York World for him; the Post-Dispatch was one of the first daily newspapers to print a comics section in color, on the back page of the features section, styled the "Everyday Magazine." At one time, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch had the second-largest news bureau in Washington, D. C. of any newspaper in the Midwestern United States. After Joseph Pulitzer's retirement, generations of Pulitzers guided the newspaper, ending when great-grandson Joseph Pulitzer IV left the company in 1995; the Post-Dispatch was characterized by a liberal editorial page and columnists, including Marquis Childs. The editorial page was noted for political cartoons by Daniel R. Fitzpatrick, who won the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, Bill Mauldin, who won the Pulitzer for editorial cartooning in 1959. Several months prior to the anniversary edition, the newspaper published a 63rd anniversary tribute to "Our Own Oddities", a lighthearted feature that ran from 1940 to 1990.
During the presidency of Harry S. Truman, the paper was one of his most outspoken critics, it associated him with the Pendergast machine in Kansas City, attacked his integrity. In 1950, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch sent a reporter, Dent McSkimming, to Brazil to cover the 1950 FIFA World Cup; the reporter paid for his own travelling expenses and was the only U. S. reporter in all of Brazil covering the event. In 1959 the St. Louis Globe-Democrat entered into a joint operating agreement with the Post-Dispatch; the Post–Globe operation merged advertising, printing functions and shared profits. The Post-Dispatch, distributed evenings, had a smaller circulation than the Globe-Democrat, a morning daily; the Globe-Democrat folded in 1983, leaving the Post-Dispatch as the only daily newspaper in the region. In August 1973 a Teamsters union representing Globe and Post-Dispatch staffers went on strike, halting production for six weeks. On January 13, 2004, the Post-Dispatch published a 125th anniversary edition, which included some highlights of the paper's 125 years: Coverage of Charles Lindbergh, who flew across the Atlantic despite being denied financial or written support from the Post-Dispatch.
A Pulitzer Prize-winning campaign to clean up smoke pollution in St. Louis. In the late 1930s and early 1940s, the city had the filthiest air in America. See 1939 St. Louis smog. Sports coverage, including nine "St. Louis baseball Cardinals" championships, an NBA title by the St. Louis Hawks in 1958, the 2000 Super Bowl victory of the St. Louis Rams. Coverage of the city's "cultural icons" including Kate Chopin, Tennessee Williams, Chuck Berry, Miles Davis. On January 31, 2005, Michael Pulitzer announced the sale of Pulitzer, Inc. and all its assets, including the Post-Dispatch and a small share of the St. Louis Cardinals, to Lee Enterprises of Davenport, for $1.46 billion. He said. On March 12, 2007, the paper eliminated 31 jobs in its circulation, classified phone rooms, purchasing, telephone operations and marketing departments. Several rounds of layoffs have followed. On March 23, 2009, the paper converted to a compact style every day from the previous broadsheet Sunday through Friday and tabloid on Saturday.
