From the local and mundane-crime blotters, crop prices, and Sunday sermons-to the Federalist Papers and Watergate, the press has played an outsized role in our nation's culture and history.Newspapers in America have always been the crucible where our passions and debates are tried by the only judge this nation respects: public opinion.

It is an inspiration for a new generation of writers--whether their medium is print or digital-looking to learn from the best of their predecessors.
