Yellow Journalism

Yellow Journalism cartoon

Yellow Journalism cartoon by Leon Barritt made available for use in the public domain.

Extra, Read All About It

News spread as fast as a war plane

Misleading headlines, big and bold

Influencing American minds

With little to no truth


Pulitzer publishing what people peruse

Hearst headlining his message

War Ship Maine destructed

Money reward for enemy capture


Newspapers spreading the word

Wartime worries, wasted paper

Stories handed to the editor

Who barely gave it a read
