Schudson (1978, 5) makes clear that journalists of this era did not make the distinctions between fact and fiction, objectivity and subjectivity, and so forth, that underlie later efforts to draw the line between news and entertainment: “at the turn of this century there was as much emphasis in leading papers on telling a good story as on getting the facts.
