Staats-Zeitung History

No Images Available

The Staats-Zeitung, established by Gustav Bruere, absorbed the money-losing Die Neue Welt. Ernest Schierenberg became editor, but money losses finally forced the subsequent sale of the paper. It was purchased by Joseph Pulitzer in 1876. He published it for one day and then sold its Associated Press franchise to the Globe for $20,000.
