Ah, the good old days

A video look at the good and bad old days of journalism. Notice that the newsrooms were pretty much all-white and women had to stay in the "Women" and "Society" sections. Also if you make it to the 9:20 mark of the 10-minute video you will see an old platen press. I ran one of these monsters in my high school printing class. With Mr. Carrington's help I could really make that thing hum. In those days I worked on writing the paper as well as printing the paper. (A result of having too many course electives).

Idea borrowed from another blog, video obviously borrowed from YouTube.
