Tales of classic scandals, scoundrels and scourges told from historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism...
The Trial of Miss Edith Colby, Girl Reporter
___This episode tells a sordid little tale of a battle between a small-town female newspaper reporter and a politician who impugned her dignity by calling her a “red light woman.” When she brought a gun into the newsroom, the editor told her that if she was going to shoot the man, to do it before the paper went to press, as it would be good for sales. Yeah, that’s not going to end well.
