Reporting of the Scopes Trial
© 2012 Ian C. Pilarczyk
H.L. Mencken, “the sage of Baltimore”,
was a noted American writer
, essayist, satirist, and journalist.
Known for his sardonic wit
, he was strongly critical of organized religion,
, Christian fundamentalism,
, and representative democracy. He has been credited as a major influence on the American libertarian movement. His reporting on the Scopes trial reached a national (if not international) audience, and it was he that created the moniker “monkey trial” that has forever been associated with the Scopes proceedings.
