I've been watching him, and I notice that when he wants cake, he wants cake; and he wants it now. And I notice that after a while he gets his cake. -Senator George Hearst, on his son, William Randolph Hearst A lively, unexpected and impeccably researched piece of popular history, Hearst in New York reveals how an unheralded young newspaperman from San Francisco walked into the media capital of the world and created the most successful daily of his time, pushing the medium to an unprecedented level of excitement and influence, and leading serious observers to wonder if newspapers might be the greatest force in civilization, more powerful even than kings and popes and presidents.
