and 1890, she was a reporter for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World. She became a pioneer in jouralism and investigative reporting. nellie came up with a way to valuable journalism to go behide the scenes. She had committed herself to mental instition for 10 days to see how they were treated and made a huge story about it. Sher was consider to be the ''best reporter in america.
