New York: Ballantine Books, 1987. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. 25 cm. xxi,  , 490 pages. Illustrations. Index. Henry George Seldes (November 16, 1890 – July 2, 1995) was an American investigative journalist, foreign correspondent, editor, author, and media critic best known for the publication of the newsletter In Fact from 1940 to 1950. He was an investigative reporter of the kind known in early 20th century as a muckraker, using his journalism to fight injustice and justify reform. But by his time the public mood had changed, and reader demand for muckraking was much weaker. According to historian Helen Fordham, Seldes's career demonstrates how those who crusaded too vehemently seemed to violate new standards of impartiality and objectivity. His work was often criticized as too radical. Influenced by Lincoln Steffens and Walter Lippmann, Seldes's career began when he was hired at the Pittsburgh Leader at the age of 19. In 1914, he was appointed night editor of the Pittsburgh Post. In 1940, Seldes co-founded a weekly newsletter, In Fact, subtitled "an Antidote to Falsehoods in the Daily Press." In it, he attacked malfeasance, often using documents from the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission. He exposed the hazards of cigarettes and attacked the press for suppressing them. He brought attention to the National Association of Manufacturers' use of advertising dollars to produce favorable news stories favorable and suppress unfavorable ones. He received an award for professional excellence from the Association for Education in Journalism in 1980 and a George Polk Award for his life's work in 1981.
