Reporting Changes From 1910 I own a local reporting website in the Bridgeport CT area called DoingItLocal.com and started researching papers from an earlier era. This was 1910 and the writing style sure was different!

I'd much rather read no-terms-barred newspapers from a century ago than the politically correct pap that passes for commentary in most modern dailies.

In researching my newest baseball book I came across the story of Ed Doheny who pitched for the 1903 Pittsburgh Pirates. He developed severe mental health issues that season and was granted temporary leave by the team--which turned out to be permanent. One newspaper reported, 'Dohney's Mind thought To Be Deranged.' Reporters certainly didn't sugarcoat the news a century ago!
