yellow journalism.
Named persons



YELLOW JOURNALISM is fully ten times as yellow as it is or can be painted. It is yellower than a yellow dog eating an omelette on an aureated rug in front of the saffron flames of a yellow pine fire. The yellow dime-novel of the past was so tame in spirit compared with the yellow journal, whose yellowness the newsboys yell far and near, that in comparison it is as a snow-white dove of purity and innocence perched beside the buzzard of unsavory battle-field fame.
