I agree - that's where I got my start. But yellow journalism is nothing new. William Randolph Hearst built an empire on it and some of his misleading stuff actually found its way into some history texts. Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders' charge up San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American War is a prime example. They arrived in Cuba without most of their horses since they couldn't arrange transport so their 'charge' was on foot - right behind the 9th and 10th Cavalry. But it was more fashionable (and better newspaper sales) to tout the adventures of a poorly trained bunch of civilians to the embarrassment of the US Army than to tell the truth about the success of all black army units.Originally Posted by reellis67
In journalism, pictures are tools to tell a story - they can be used to enhance the telling of the facts or they can be used to tell lies.
