Abstract: This thesis examines the growing powers of the American press under Joseph Pulitzer and the executive office under Theodore Roosevelt. The controversial construction of the Panama Canal, the acquisition of the Canal Zone by the United States, and the 1909 federal libel suit between the United States government the Press Publishing Company provide the main context in which these two institutions of the early twentieth century are analyzed. Other themes explored include the role of sensatationalistic press in American politics, the changing nature of American foreign policy, and the personal enmity between Pulitzer and Roosevelt. Research sources mainly include biographies and correspondence of Roosevelt and Pulitzer, chronicles of Pulitzer's newspapers, and the newspapers themselves --most notably the New York World and New York Times.
