Foreign Correspondents Ep.10
Contributor to Trump's victory: yellow journalism?

During his campaigning for president, Donald Trump constantly drew public attention with his controversial remarks. What also helped put the now president-elect in the spotlight is the website libertywritersnews.com. Founded by Paris Wade and Ben Goldman, the website catered to readers with sensational and provocative stories biased against President Barack Obama and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, becoming known as a classic example of yellow journalism. However, within six months, the website attracted 800,000 followers. How was this possible, and how did this outlet manage to wield such influence?

Role of conventional media outlets

With sensational headlines and unfiltered content, yellow journalism typically emerges alongside regular media coverage of major stories that grip readers. As social media and online outlets increasingly play a large role in delivering news to consumers, yellow journalism and fake news have surfaced as bigger players. Sensationalism has also appeared in the 'Choi Soon-sil scandal' that has rocked Korean society. Rather than focusing on core issues such as allegations on the abuse of power and corruption, some articles have been picking apart trivial matters such as what clothes Choi wore when summoned by prosecutors. With yellow journalism on a general upswing, we sit down to discuss the repercussions of this trend and the role of conventional media.

We sit down to discuss these issues and more.
