THE "BARON OF THE COLORADOS."; HE CLAIMS A GREAT T

From New York Times:
July 7, 1891, Wednesday

Page 2, 786 words

ST. LOUIS, July 6. -- The Peralta-Reavis land claim comes to the front with the regularity of Biela's comet, but more frequently. A few days ago it was telegraphed from New-York that Mr. J.

Biased Article????

Post by Joe Ribaudo »

pip,

I am at a loss to determine any bias in the article. It seems pretty straight forward and presents the facts of what was taking place at the time.

Why do you think it qualifies as "yellow journalism"?

Thanks in advance,

Joe Ribaudo

Yellow Journalisim/Ted Turner.......

Post by Joe Ribaudo »

pip,

Very nice site. Ted Turner and "yellow journalism" are a great example of the term. I actually know the definition, but was asking what you felt qualified Count's posted article as biased. Did you have an answer to that question?

Thanks in advance,

Joe Ribaudo
