Joseph Pulitzer built himself up from a penniless immigrant, to the pre-eminent newspaper giant of New York City. His insistence on accuracy and ground-breaking headlines made his New York World the top selling newspaper in the country. But Pulitzer's journalistic integrity is tested when young millionaire, William Randolph Hearst, sets out to steal the throne with his own newspaper. Hearst's gossip rag spawns a publishing empire, and the competition between the newspaper titans revolutionises journalism for the modern era. Alternative title: American Genius.
