    Nellie Bly (real name Elizabeth Jane Cochran) was a 23-year-old journalist without a job when she walked into the offices of J. Pulitzer’s NY World in 1887 and was given the daunting assignment of exposing the horrors of the Blackwell’s Island Insane Asylum. She played mad. “Undoubtedly demented… a hopeless case,” said one of the doctors who admitted her. But inside the asylum she chronicled the awful food and awful conditions that spurred reform. A brilliant reporter; a brilliant example!
