Detective Biography

Nellie McKinzey is a 22 year-old fresh faced reporter at the New York Post. A recent college graduate (in the first graduating class) of Saint Joseph College in West Hartford, Connecticut, McKinzey feels the need to prove herself. It is whispered in the copy room and beyond that McKinzey was only hired because her father is a good friend and drinking partner of J. David Stern- the owner of the New York Post. She is an only child, and is not very comfortable around children or persons of her own age. While she is an aggressive investigator, she also cares about the people behind the story, and helps out where and when she can. She dreams of going to Washington D.C. and becoming a foreign correspondent in Europe for The Washington Post, and working under Eugene Meyer. On the wall of her living room, she has her graduation present from her mother and father. It is a plaque that reads as follows:

The Seven Principles for the Conduct of a Newspaper

1. The first mission of a newspaper is to tell the truth as nearly as the truth may be ascertained.

2. The Newspaper shall tell ALL the truth so far as it can learn it, concerning the important affairs of America and the world.

3. As a disseminator of the news, the paper shall observe the decencies that are obligatory upon a private gentleman.

4. What it prints shall be fit reading for the young as well as for the old.

5. The newspaper's duty is to its readers and to the public at large, and not to the private interests of its owners.

6. In the pursuit of truth, the newspaper shall be prepared to make sacrifices of its material fortunes, if such course be necessary for the public good.

7. The newspaper shall not be the ally of any special interest, but shall be fair and free and wholesome in its outlook on public affairs and public men.

-Eugene Meyer, March 5, 1935
