Jefferson Brick is a fictional war correspondent of The New York Rowdy Journal in Charles Dickens's novel Martin Chuzzlewit. He is a caricature of youthful, raucous journalism which Dickens had experienced when visiting America in 1842, such as the New York Herald of the real-life Gordon Bennett.[1][2]
