A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Journalism Collection -... the "discipline of collecting, verifying, reporting and analyzing information gathered regarding current events, including trends, issues and people." The Oxford Gazette in 1665 was the first regularly published newspaper. In the colonies, James Franklin's New England Courant began in 1721 and is often seen as the first real colonial newspaper. His famous brother Ben moved to Pennsylvania where he took over publication of the Pennsylvania Gazette in 1729. He became an important contributor to American journalism, eventually supporting the startup of printers and newspapers in many colonial cities. By 1750, there were 14 weekly papers in the 6 largest cities, with some publishing up to 3 times a week. At least 89 papers by the 1770's, and 234 by 1800. Around 1835 the concept of the newspaper as a capitalist institution free of governmental or party control began. Horace Greeley's New York Tribune was the first paper with a national influence, shipping thousands of copies to different cities by the start of the Civil War. The New York Times (1851) established the principal of balanced reporting with high-level writing. The linotype, high speed color presses, computers, global communications, have all contributed to an era where journalism is actively supported with intensive college programs, and proves to be a powerful force in newspapers, radio and TV, as well as a growing presence on the internet.
