A Modern Rake’s Progress

They said young McCord would go to the top if he kept his hands clean. But George was a cynical news salesman, who didn’t mind dirt so long as it paid off.

He sold his women a bill of goods – his friends down the river – and himself into the most powerful spot in a fabulous wire-service empire.

This is the brutally frank story of a modern rake’s progress, which rips the lid off the jungle behind the headlines.
