Today in journalism history

If you had been reading the World's Greatest Newspaper on this day in 1950, you would have seen something you were pretty used to seeing, at least if you were a regular reader: the proprieter's name. Here, he's being honored as "the greatest patriot of this generation."

We don't see Bertie McCormick's like too often these days, so the occasional hint of a return to the good old days is actually kind of cool. For example, this gripping op-ed from the Wall Street Journal, which spent most of the weekend on the front page of the Fair 'n' Balanced Network before migrating to its perkier cousin, Fox Nation.

You can almost hear 'em tuning up for the Chicago Theater of the Air, can't you?
