"I.F. Stone's Weekly Was a Journalistic Triumph of the 20th Century"

In a journalistic poll to determine the “Top 100 Works of Journalism in the United States in the 20th Century.” I.F. Stone's Weekly was rated 16th. And this was the second highest rating accorded any sustained print journalism in the entire century (i.e., fourteen of the fifteen higher-ranked works of journalism were books or related to radio or TV journalism). By contrast, Murray Kempton’s columns were ranked 49th and Walter Lippmann was ranked 64th for “Early essays for the New Republic. 1914.”
