Making News

In the 1880s and 1990s, a “new journalism” emerged in Britain and America. “New journalism” is an appropriately elastic label for a wide array of new forms and practices associated with increasing commercialization and popularization of the daily newspaper. These new styles flourished in London and New York, but newspapers in other cities contributed too. The “new journalism” that originated in the growing industrial cities on both sides of the Atlantic brought a new perspective on urban political economy, often overlooked. Because of their role in the civic lives as well as the political and commercial lives of their cities, newspapers were often drawn into an ideological transformation from classic economic liberalism to a more collectivist municipal progressivism. To illustrate the contribution of the daily newspaper to the evolving political economy of the late nineteenth-century city, this chapter offers a close comparison of two remarkable cities: Manchester and Chicago.
