NEWSPAPERS OF THE DAY



Very important note on newspapers.Many Chicago reporters back in the 1920's were constantly in competition with each other for sales and popularity. Each newspaper, about 8 in Chicago at the time, were covering the same stories each with a little different twist or facts to sway readers from the competition.Soon competition at crime scenes became a race to stay on top of the news biz.Many reverted to yellow journalism and sensationalism which included twisted facts using any means possible to get the newspaper sold.While most newpapers included facts, not all the info and facts contained in the following newspapers can be taken at 100 % face value. This website tries to get the story right as possible for the reader and viewer to better inform them.I am very passionate about my hobby and take it seriously, but not too seriously as to think that i know it all.If you feel i have erred or would like to add any valid info to this website you are more than welcome.
My heartfelt thanks goes to Kimberly Deal for her help on this subject.
