Did you know that Thomas Edison was also a local watchdog reporter?

February 12, 2014

Thomas Edison turned 167 yesterday.  You probably know him as the great American inventor responsible for the lightbulb, the telegraph, and the phonograph – but did you know that Edison was also a local watchdog reporter?

Like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison was renowned for his restless search for knowledge and self-improvement.  However, most people don’t know that these two Americans shared another common passion: the free press.

Though never a journalist by trade, Edison produced his own local journal dedicated to dispersing information that the major newspapers couldn’t cover.
