“shoe-leather : Basic, old-fashioned or traditional; specifically (journalism) shoe-leather journalism or shoe-leather reporting: journalism involving walking from place to place observing things and speaking to people, rather than sitting indoors at a desk. Today is the 105th anniversary of the death of American-Hungarian newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer in 1911. Pulitzer left money in his will to establish the Pulitzer Prizes, which are awarded annually for journalism, literature and music.”
