When Sewickley Academy History professor Mike Caesario contacted 1001 and asked if we could participate in their annual chapter studies on Yellow Journalism we jumped at the chance-and agreed to pick a winner from the essays and read it on our show. The entries were all excellent and provided thesis statements and supporting examples from the story of William Randolph Hearst's attempts to sway public opinion against Spain by disseminating non-facts regarding the explosion of the USS Maine in the Havana Harbor in order to foment a war- as well as confirming the need to get both sides of every story in the news.. Hearst and Pulitzer were locked in a battle for dominance in the newspaper industry and their continual display of journalistic malfeasance came to head during this crisis.
