JOURNALISM AUTOGRAPHS

Journalism, as a branch of literature, was felt to be worthy of a separate category.  Although great journalists are usually also great writers, the two are not necessarily synonymous.  Journalism requires something more than literary ability and the best journalists have also been men and women of conviction and social conscience. The best journalists achieve huge influence and considerable power and in the 19th and 20th centuries were often at the right hand of governments and were consulted on the important issues of the day. The best journalism is fearless and ground-breaking and can often influence public opinion to such an extent that the course of history can be changed. William Howard Russell of the Times was such a man and his reports on conditions in the Crimea and their effect on public opinion forced the government into radical changes in policy and military tactics. Good journalism also has the ability to inform, educate or simply make a nation smile.
