Harold Holzer talked about his book, Lincoln and the Power of the Press: The War for Public Opinion, in which he examines Abraham Lincoln’s relationships with the press. He talked about Lincoln’s strong-armed tactics with newspaper owners, using their power to steer issues such as slavery, union, and his own political career. He also talked about Lincoln’s authorization of some of the most widespread censorship in the nation’s history, as he closed down “disloyal” papers, jailed their editors, and took over the nation’s use of the telegraph. close
