Title

[SB019020e], Clipping, Thomas Alva Edison, January 28th, 1889

Editor's Notes

The Metropolis describes the controversy surrounding the phonograph sale as a one of the most sensation business scandals in the country. Many newspapers have been revelling in the subject and writing about the sale and the parties involved. The Metropolis makes five observations about the newspapers' coverage of the sale and what is definitively known. It also addresses the papers' sudden abandonment of the story, the preparation of libel suits, and how newspapers' did not cover the story very well.
