Newsboy!

by Bill Fairbairn | 12 October 2016
Category: Industry Finance
Synopsis
Newsboy takes readers through a lifetime in printing and journalism. One can experience the sudden transition to todays computer assisted printing process after more than 500 years of printing from moveable wooden and metal typefaces in the Western world. Good luck helped the author touch skies over three continents. He found stepping stones across the swirling rivers of newsboy, printer and journalist. Now as editor emeritus of a suburban Ottawa community newspaper he has put it all together in his fifth book. If editor emeritus sounds highfalutin then consider that he also writes and photographs for his Riverview Park Review newspaper, delivers it to doorsteps as he did his Scottish hometown newspapers 73 years ago and he serves on the board of directors. His book takes readers through increased civil rights, his infantry soldier years, more equality still being contested, national independence, musical genius, loves labour lost and won and the more relevant media transformation. He personally experienced objective news judgment when he was aged 15 and he tries to judge news objectively today at age 81 on the Review. From his full-time experience on 15 daily and weekly newspapers, radio and a magazine in Britain, Africa and Canada, he tells what happened around newshounds of the old school pounding Underwood typewriter keys and himself writing interviews in Pitman shorthand. The author believes every journalism student would benefit from reading this book and that readers generally would enjoy it too.
