• why did late-1890s newspapers publish sensational stories about cuba and the spanish-american war?

  • Answers
  • The late 1890s was a time of intense tensions between the United States and Spain, as the US sought to gain control of Cuba. This led to the Spanish-American War, which began in April 1898. In the months leading up to the war, newspapers in the US created a great deal of sensationalized coverage of events in Cuba, which served to both whip up public enthusiasm for the war and to push the government towards action.
