    Joseph Pulitzer was a yellow journalist who among others things helped instigate the Spanish American war by misleading the public when the USS Maine sank after a boiler explosion

    Among other things this lead to the USA aquiring Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guaam and the Philippines and help set the stage for the Pacific war during the second world war

    Yellow journalism is flourishing today as we head into the next great conflict
