A SHOCK TO MODESTY. ~ "Fine Example of Journalistic Enterprise" Rebuked.

June 25, 1908

"Fine Example of Journalistic Enter-
prise" Rebuked.

"The exclusive publication this morning by The Star and The New York Times of the Republican National Platform as submitted to the Committee on Resolutions may be spoken of without the least violation of modesty, as a fine example of journalistic enterprise." -- Kansas City Star

"The modesty to which our contemporary is so careful was so well guarded in its partnership with us in the enterprise referred to that we have been, until now, quite unaware of that partnership. We suspect it was established wholly on the initiative of our contemporary about one hour after the Times had printed the platform." -- New York Times
