If you feel as if you need to watch the video again, please go ahead.

"Yellow Journalism" is the type of journalism that relies on sensationalism and lurid exaggeration to attract readers

Look at both of the following examples of "Yellow Journalism" and answer the questions that follow:
Example #1
Example #2

1. What is most noticable about the example?
2. What is the example showing? What is the example representing?
3. How is this media making people feel?
4. How would this influence or change people's minds?

Does "Yellow Journalism" still exist today? Watch this video and be prepared to discuss the question.


Now, take a few minutes to research William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer (you will be assigned one of them) and be prepared to share the information that you found with us the next time we meet.
