Joseph Pulitzer is best known for posthumously establishing the Pulitzer Prizes to honor great contributors in the fields of journalism and literature, and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, one of the best journalism schools historically. But before that, he had already contributed enormously to the newspaper industry. He not only revived St. Louis Post Dispatch and New York World, but also introduced the techniques of "new journalism" and “yellow journalism” to newspapers, and thus appealed to readers with varieties of forms of news, entertainment and advertising.
Nobody could imagine that such a newspaper tycoon as Joseph Pulitzer who crusaded against big business and corruption and advocated social reform could not even speak English when he first arrived in the US from Hungary. Besides, upon his arrival he had no money with him at all.
What he did to live on was find a job position in a library, and meanwhile take several of other jobs such as cavalryman and lawyer. From these experiences he trained his language ability and accumulated knowledge by reading plenty of books as well as built an admirable personality and developed a global vision that prepared him well for his career. Soon he managed to be a good reporter and editor in Westliche Post. This was his turning point. From then on, he continued his development in the newspaper field and successfully expanded it to the political field.
