A speakeasy, also called a blind pig or blind tiger, is an establishment that illegally sells alcoholic beverages. Such establishments came into prominence in the United States during the period known as Prohibition (1920–1933, longer in some states). During this time, the sale, manufacture, and transportation (bootlegging) of alcoholic beverages was illegal throughout the United States.

According to an 1889 newspaper, “Unlicensed saloons in Pennsylvania are known as ‘speak-easies.’”[1] They were so called because of the practice of speaking quietly about such a place in public, or when inside it, so as not to alert the police or neighbors.[2]

Speakeasies were numerous and popular during the Prohibition years. Some of them were operated by people who were part of organized crime. Even though police and agents of the Bureau of Prohibition would often raid them and arrest their owners and patrons, they were so profitable that they continued to flourish.

This primary document is talking about Pulitzer and his yellow journalism. He likes to print the truth and he said, “I had a small paper which had been dead for years, and I was trying in every way I could think of to build up its circulation. . . . What could I use for bait? A picture, of course. . . . On page one, in a position that would make the World stand out as the paper lay folded on the newss I had a small paper which had been dead for years, and I was trying in every way I could think of to build up its circulation. . . . What could I use for bait? A picture, of course. . . . On page one, in a position that would make the World stand out as the paper lay folded on the newsstand…” He liked to use pictures and bait people. He liked to use any means necessary to have people buy papers. Yellow journalism worked just like the Inquirer magazines.

This paper is an example of yellow journalism and talking about the Maine explosion. The paper accuses a bomb or torpedo from making it explode. They did not know what it was. They made the picture huge for people to buy the papers. The picture shows some unreal distruction.

This is an example of the ‘New York Journal’ and the yellow journalism is blaming somebody’s death that happened. It explains a reward 55.000 $ for the sense that happened saying about the criminals who sent Americans to their death. It was trying to destroy their stuff on purpose. They think that maybe it came from a Spanish mine.
