1896: Newspaper Wars
American journalism started developing changes in the late 1800’s. Joseph Pulitzer and William Hearst were engaged in a public war while trying to try two new types of journalism. Hearst was one of the creators in yellow journalism, which he end up developing The New York Journal. Consequently, yellow journalism or tabloidism was known for independent editors that were willing to go on to independent paths. Also, Hearst decreased the price of journals 2 cents down and became popular with the New York Press.
