George Bernard Shaw was a well-known playwright at the turn of the 20th century, but he was also a journalist whose advocacy on behalf of the press helped shape modern journalism. On The Point, Kathryn Eident talks with Shaw scholar and Massachusetts Maritime Academy professor Nelson Ritschel about his new book, "Bernard Shaw, W.T. Stead, and the New Journalism." 

Link here to an article by Ritschel written for the Irish Times about Shaw's journalism.
