Now, however, a new book argues that the legend on which Franklin’s reputation rests is dubious. There was no kite, no key, no bolt, no knuckle, no charge. He let people believe that he had been places he never went, done things he never did, and seen things that never happened. No wonder he’s been called the father of American journalism.
