Google honours journalist Nellie Bly on her birthday

A musical Google doodle marked the 151st birthday Nellie Bly, the high profile woman journalist who set her own standards in journalism. She was America's first war reporter covering the first world war and as a reporter she defended the poor and condemned the corrupt. In 1887, working in New York World under Joseph Pulitzer she wrote Nellie Bly’s Book: Around the World in Seventy-Two Days. Her actual name is Elizabeth Cochrane and was born in Pittsburgh on May 5, 1864. It was a scathing “letter to the editor” to protest a misogynistic article that launched her remarkable career. Impressed by the prose, the editor for the Pittsburg Dispatch offered her a job at the paper where Cochrane began to use the penname Nellie Bly.
