On Arthur Brisbane: Journalist Arthur Brisbane began his career as the editor of Charles A. Dana’s newspaper the Sun. In 1896, he was named Sunday editor of the New York World by publisher Joseph Pulitzer. He became circulation director for the World, and later distinguished himself for his editorials in William Randolph Hearst’s rival paper, the New York Journal. Together, the two sensational and gossip-filled tabloids marked the beginning of “yellow journalism” in the United States.
