Hearst Answers Queries of a Hostile Press [excerpt]

     “They have said that my papers caused the assassination of McKinley, and yet everyone who read the papers at the time knows that the wretch Czolgosz was not even able to read English. When the rival newspapers at that time tried to bribe this wretch to say some harmful thing of this kind, they then were defeated by the fact that he could not read English.
