Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People

Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People

“Captures an essential moment... an excellent primer not just on the man but on the birth of the modern newspaper.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Narrated by Adam Driver, Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People explores the remarkable man behind the prestigious Pulitzer Prizes. A Jewish immigrant from Hungary, Joseph Pulitzer began as a gifted journalist before becoming a successful publisher and businessman. Pulitzer was famous in his own time for his outspoken and cantankerous editorial voice and his newspapers’ striking illustrations, visual style, national circulation and financial success. Against the context of America’s explosive growth as a world force during the Gilded Age, Pulitzer emerges as the country’s first media titan, reshaping the newspaper to bear witness to and even propel that transformation.
