Warren G. Harding's stint as president often overshadows the thirty-nine years he spent as owner of the Marion Daily Star, in Marion, Ohio. This hour we'll talk about how Harding's days as a newspaperman shaped his presidency; we'll discuss the rise and fall of the family-owned paper, and the intersection of the press and politics.
