Premise:
Stories of a crusading newspaper editor and staff.
The long-running melodrama centered on the "Illustrated Press", the largest and most influential newspaper in Big Town,
whose driving force was crusading editor Steve Wilson. Steve's concerns were thwarting the spread of organized crime,
exposing political corruption, establishing various types of reforms, and any other cause that seemed worthy.
