The amazing story behind the greatest newspaper men to ever live, Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, lies primarily hidden with their reporters who were in the field.
They risked their lives in Cuba as the country grappled for independence simply to “get the story” and write what was not always the most accurate story, but definitely the best. Anything to sell papers. Reporters like Harry Scovel, Stephen Crane, Cora Taylor, Richard Harding Davis, and James Creelman, among others, put themselves in danger every day just for the news.
The Yellow Kids is an adventure story packed with engaging characters, witticism, humor and adversity, to reveal that the “yellow” found in journalism was often an extra ingredient applied by editors and publishers in New York.
