Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People

"Our republic and its press will rise or fall together" - Joseph Pulitzer

Adam Driver is the narrator while Liev Schreiber is the voice of Pulitzer; together they bring to life the virtually unknown American icon who spoke of “fake news” and of providing opportunities to immigrants over one hundred years ago.
