New York Journal and Related Titles, 1896-1899 Online

This collection of the New York Journal comes from the Library of Congress. It covers the years 1896-1899 and includes the New York Journal and other titles it changed to during that time frame.

From the website: "In 1895, William Randolph Hearst purchased the paper to compete with Joseph Pulitzer's New York World. The New York Journal is an example of "Yellow Journalism," where the newspapers competed for readers through bold headlines, illustrations, and activist journalism. The paper infamously reported on and influenced events like the Spanish-American War."
