That 1960s sanguine (if simplistic) view of journalistic independence from ﬁscal pressure, cultivated over the ﬁrst half of the twentieth century, would not stand the tests of time and changing circumstances in its last quarter. Twenty-ﬁve years later, when a similar boycott was aimed at The Wichita Eagle, the corporate response would be quite different. Even in 1975, currents that would erode the prevailing Knight Newspapers philosophy were already running beneath the surface. Viewed from the perspective of 2005, the prevailing idea that journalism could maintain its exemption from the worst pressures of the marketplace looks, at best, wildly naive.
