Crucible of Empire - PBS Online

This article was made by the New york journal. Someone has destroyed the maine and is not yet found. It was cleared that is was no accident that the maine was destroyed. 50,000 dollar reward sign is written nice and bold so that who ever was reading this would try to find the perpetraitor. There are many aticles like this out there today that ether says lost dog or lost kid and is overing anybody a expensive award if they find whatever is missing. I think using money to make people look for valuable things is important and yellow journalism plays a big part in that.

Primary document #2

This newspaper was written by the New york jounal.The headline is used to automatically get the readers attention and instigate the problem. The headline made the words "Awful" and "slaughtered' for exaggeration so the reader would keep reading. This is how people of the yellow press made their money, these stories caught many peoples eye. Since stories/articles had caused so much interest William Hearst morning newspapers rised and rised. The article is explaining the troops that were killed at manila. It was also saying the City of manila its self has been attacked. Just by looking at this article made me want to read it because of the Heading. Articles like this are still written in newspapers today to make people actually read the newspaper.
