Free James Titus! - Shame James Creelman!
"...If the war against Spain is justified in the eyes of history, then "yellow journalism" deserves its place among the most useful intrumentalities of civilization. It may be guilty of giving the world a lop-sided view of events by exaggerating the importance of a few things and ignoring others, it may offend the eye by typographical violence, it may sometimes proclaim it's own deeds too loudly; but it never deserted the case of the poor and the downtrodden."
