journalism (OED 1833)

1827 _Times_ 22 Dec. 2  The "journalism" of the _Moniteur_ and _Gazette de
France_ is resorted to by the same ingenious Minister, as the organ
through which their own profession and privileges are held up to alternate
fear and scorn.  Journalism, it appears, in the eyes of M. de VILLELE,
ought to resemble Irish reciprocity.
